    Default Fireplace Mantel Addition

    Although Im not a Imperial collector I was lucky to pick up a few very nice Reservist Steins while working in Germany, I use these to decorate my Fireplace Mantel. Recently I thought it would be nice to add a Pickelhaube into this display-
    Will here it is a Prussian Officials Pickelhaube - has only one kokade which is prussian as is prescribed. Has the Prussian eagle on the front with the W and crown - overall this Haube is in great condition both inside and out.
    Have added a period picture with this haube in wear.

    Nice haube ! a Prussian Police officials/Officers haube I believe.......it is correct in only having one kokarden.
    Prost ! Steve.

    I do agree!
    But if you are realy using the fireplace, I would advice not to leave the helmet on top of the mantel piece.
    Nice helmet!

    Thanks for the comments - Np problem the fireplace has been converted from wood burning to gas - more for the look than the heat.
