An original Horizon Blue French Army Officers hat in good condition and made from serge.
This pattern of cap came into use with the French Army in 1916 and saw issue throughout the rest of the Great War. The cap is made from a horizon blue serge and features dark blue piping which is machine stitched on with white thread.
The interior of the cap feature a brown leather sweatband which is typical of the period. Aside from this there are no other markings that I can see.
The cap is in good condition and displays well. There are no signs of serious damage or wear and only minor staining. Overall it displays well for a 100+ year old hat.
Overall a very nice original Great War Officers hat which would make a nice addition to any collection!
