Original Item: Only One Available. This is an incredibly rare French Pre-WWI Kepi For a high ranking Medical officer, possibly a General’s rank. This is a worn example with heavy bullion gilt wire embroidery of laurel leaves across the rich wine-red velvet hat band. It was never fixed with a chinstrap or buttons. While the all red construction indicates medical the laurel leaf band and caduceus indicates a very high ranking officer. The top of the hat shows moth and holes, but still displays well. The interior is similarly worn with a dry leather sweatband and silk lining. The leather visor is sturdy but shows age and dryness. Size is approximately 6 3/4 US (54cm). Overall condition is worn but good for a 110+ year old wool, velvet and leather kepi.
