Ulanen Regt. Nr.15 set so frosty it will hurt your eyes.

Post by Tony without Kaiser » Thu Feb 01, 2018 1:41 pm

For those that find Ulanen Tschapka a confusing form of headgear, some research into why the Prussians (and many other countries) adopted a Polish Lancer pattern helmet after the Napoleonic wars is worth the effort. Or, wait until PeterS writes an article :study: .

At any rate, I have a dozen Tschapka and they are fascinating. Even more so with the matching Ulanka which is what I am showing here today.

This Ulanen-Regt. Nr.15 ensemble from Schleswig-Holsteinisches Ulanen-Regt. Nr.15, garrisoned in Saarburg and part of the XXI Armee Korps, is absolutely breathtaking. The Ulanka has dark, deep rich colours and is in FNM condition; so much that it hurts the eyes to look at it. It is coupled with one of the most superb issued Tschapka I have ever seen, and BA stamped of course to 3E UR15. You could shave looking at the lacquer it is so mirror-perfect.

The link to the Tschapka, with more photos and the standard write-up is HERE

The link to the Ulanka is at the bottom of that page.

Enjoy

Magnificent combination! Well beyond museum quality and hard to believe that such an issued set could have survived all theses decades in such perfect condition. Another fantastic example from the Bunker collection :thumb up:

Really nice pair in a stunning condition :bravo:
Although the late Tschapka is not my favorite. It may depends that I have no military background and my interest is more drived by the 19th century, not only the military intensions.
Best wishes, Sandy

Thank you all for the kind remarks. I've had eight standing Ulanen torsos with matching Tschapka and Ulanka, and this is the one that stood out the most. It literally "pops" when you look at it the colours are so bright and rich. And of course the condition of the Tschapka is jaw-dropping.  As mentioned before I've had this set for many years, but I have finally gotten around to taking acceptable photos and uploading them to Kaiser's Bunker.

Beautiful headgear!

I think the first issue was 1902, not 1904 :wink:

The 02 under the UR15 stamp Philippe? That would explain that! :occasion5:

I'll add that to the text.

Yes, Tony! :occasion5: I think this is clearly 1902, but because of the wrinkle in liner, the stamp did not print perfectly :wink:

Get the Front Door Tony!!!!

Absolutely stunning! Looks like you just raided the depot and got a brand new uniform and Tschapka!

Talk about Mint Condition!

One amazing grouping! :-"
