6th Inniskilling Dragoons 1871 Pattern Officer`s Helmet

A 6th or Inniskilling Dragoons Officer`s 1871 Pattern Helmet comprising a silver plated brass skull with gilt ornamentation and a white horsehair plume. The skull is in very nice condition with only a couple of very minor creases at the rear of the skull which are covered by the plume. The helmet retains its original leather sweatband and silk headband. The front peak is lined with skiver leather which is original to the helmet and retains its original gilt brass chin chain backed onto black leather.
Rare to find in this condition.
