Product Description

A very nice looking example of the 1886 to 1918 French Infantry Kepi as worn by a Commandant (Major).

The kepi probably dates from around 1900 and has the more compact ‘Polo’ shape. It has the blue-black and red combination colours, representing Infantry, and the 4 gold bullion rings denotes the officer rank. The gilded brass flaming grenade represents the French Army (not Artillery) and there is a national colours cockade and gold bullion pom-pom. The leather peak is rounded and the chin strap is a gold bullion ribbon strap. The inside is lined in gold silk and has the maker’s mark of E. Bidal, 3 Rue de Richelieu, Paris. The cap shows a few moth nips and grazing and wear, but remains a very attractive example. Head size is about 57 (7 1/8) approximately.

Size: 25 x 20.5 x 15 cm (9 7/8 x 8 x 6 inches)
Weight: 251 g
