A very rare and impressive collection of Ulan casques Maxime, congratulations. I have been lucky enough, to do restoration work on 4 of the original leather ones and their construction is totally unique! I am most interested in your felt tschapka as they are exceptionally rare. I was offered faux examples when I was a younger collector, but did not buy them. We have all seen so many copies/fakes for sale. James and I encountered one original at the last SOS Show and we took pictures but it was damaged. I had never handled a real original before and it was an extraordinary experience. Some extra... close up photos of your original filz tschapka would be very much appreciated when you have time. My thanks.

WOW !!

Is the tin skull lined with leather ?

What a great piece as well as the felt !!!!

How hard I wonder would it have been to keep that on your head while riding a horse.

Even with the chin strap being worn.

Fashion vs function.
