  1. 2 490,00 €

    Out of stock

Regiment dress, mythical by the brevity of its existence and its so little "French" style.

Hussards de la mort volunteered at the revolutionary period and equipped themselves to fight against the members of the coalition.

This complete uniform was a major symbol of our shop and different exhibitions years long.
We replace some elements.
Mr Gardette - 1,80 m tall - a well known re enactor made it for himself more than 25 years ago.
It looks like a real one, because he used it riding horses, sleeping outside while tooking part to many re enactments.
