Item Description

Original Item: One-of-a-kind. "The pride of the Kaiser, respect of the people, and feared by the enemy", these words were written by a young woman in Braunschweig in 1907. These comments were entered in her diary after watching a gala parade of the 17th Hussar Regiment prior to their participation in the Kaiser ma- neuvers of 1907. The 17th Hussars, one of the most colorful of all Imperial German regiments, posses- sed a fierce pride in their regimental history which permeated into their insignia, uniforms and eventual decor on their regimental beer steins and pipes.

A porcelain pipe with multiple sections of the pipe stem, the most ornate of which is composed of sections of horn, tassels, and a hussars  Pelzmütze or busby. The body is marked to the 17th Braunschweig Hussars (17 Rgt.) "3 Esc" (3rd Squadron). The porcelain bowl is dated 1906. The is a metal horse that is unattached as included. Overall excellent pre World War One Hussars regimental tobacco pipe.
