A SUPERB CASED SET OF TWO MINIATURE MILITARY STANDARDS, THE ROYAL SUSSEX REGIMENT.
This is an amazing set of miniature British Regimental standards dating to the 1920's and which are probably unique and were perhaps produced for display in the Regimental officers mess. Both of the standards are produced in silk with Regimental designs with kings crown and battle honour's for the for the Royal Sussex Regiment and they both have a fringe to three sides, they are mounted on wooden poles with matching gilt metal lion and crown finial's and bullion streamers. Included in the original storage case is a circular wooden stand for the flags to be mounted on to. Also included are two white leather bandoleers with gilt fittings for carrying the standards and even two brass and leather cases for storing the standards, just like the full size originals would have. All these items are fitted into a wooden presentation case which is factory fitted for the standard in blue velvet. The actual cloth standards each measure appropriately 6 x 5 inches in size. A fascinating item especially if you have connections to the county of Sussex or are a flag collector. [Condition: Near Mint]
