PRUSSIAN GENERAL'S PARADE TUNIC
This is an absolutely superb example of a pre-1909 parade tunic of a Prussian General.
It includes its original and correct aiguillette (with two stars) on the right shoulder, and the unique twisted shoulder cord on the left shoulder.
There are loops for a long medal bar, as well as numerous loops for badges/stars on the left breast.
It is fully lined in red cloth, whiles the sleeves are lined in off-white (there is a property stamp from a wardrobe in the right sleeve lining).
The condition of this tunic really is exceptional; usually the bullion has darkened greatly, whereas the bullion embroidery on this tunic retains much of its original gilding.
There is one small visible repair of three stitches on the right shoulder.
