A Polish Napoleonic 7th/9th Lancers Chapska. This is a helmet for a Polish Lancer of the 7th/9th Lancer Vistula Legion 1807 - 1812. This regiment fought against the British at Abuera in 1811 and were also part of the invasion force that entered Russia in 1812. The helmet is in very good condition and definitely of 19th Century vintage. I am selling on behalf of another customer and headgear of this period is not my speciality so I am unable to guarantee it 100% as being original to the period although the quality and style of manufacture is excellent. The price reflects this and the buyer must make up their own mind about this before purchase as there are no returns on this item. If you have any questions please let me know and I will pass them on to my consignee.
