French commandant képi in its box !

Dear All

Another piece of my French collection, this time a képi for a commandant of the 133 inf. reg. in its box.

The piece is in mint condition, not a single hole, not a scratch, not a smudge and the colours are still vibrant, almost like on the day it was made, back in 1900. It was made by the best uniform manufacturer at the time, E Bidal. All Bidal’s pieces found in the collectors’ market command a higher price due to the very high quality of their equipment.

It belonged to a gentleman named Henri Georges Weild, who was a reserve officer. He died during the Great War, but from natural death.

Best
