Heer Artillerie 4-pocket parade tunic & straight trousers - Obergefreiter

Description

Heer parade uniform to an artillery Obergefreiter consisting of his tunic, his trousers and shooting lanyard.

Parade tunic with breast pockets and lower pockets design like an early "Gesellschaftsrock". A very rare example which does not look to have the pockets added later. The fabric is absolutely matching.

Hand-embroidered breast eagle with fine bullion top line. It would have been re-attached when the original woven eagle came off for fashion reason.

Dark green collar with machine-attached collar tabs. Sewn-in shoulder boards. Attached shooting lanyard.
Hand-applied rank chevron and "signal's" badge. Early tombak buttons!

Fine silk lining. Medium size. Minor mothing.

Straight trousers with red artillery piping to the legs. Silk striped lining with a barely readable "Geprüft Lg (La?) D.R.P (?) stamp. Two buttons period time replaced. One missing to the rear. No moth damage. Waist: 84cm. Length: 105cm.
