  • Shapska de chevau léger du 2 ème régiment (hollandais)

    Gros travail quand on veut réaliser cette coiffure comme elle était à l'époque!
    Le pavillon est d'abord cloisonné en cousant des bandes parallèles, il faut ensuite passer des tiges de rotin bien calibrées, une par une, dans chaque tube qui a été ainsi crée.
    La plaque est argentée sur le médaillon central, et l'on rajoute ensuite le N et la couronne.
    La gourmette est constituée d'anneaux qui sont tous vrillés, mais l'ensemble est plat.
    Le cuir de l'entrée de coiffure n'a pas une forme tout à fait cylindrique, il se resserre en haut à la jonction avec le pavillon.
    Le cordon est d'une longueur démesurée.
    Tout est hors norme dans cette coiffure...c'est aussi ce qui fait son charme!

  • Bicorne d'officier général sans plumes.

    For purpose of comfort and economy, generals would wear hats without feathers or without embroideries and sometimes neither of them.

    The cockade can be maintained with a oak leaves' braid (worn by Lassale at Stettin) or torsades (Les invalides museum).
    No issues with the colour of the feather which usually helps to identify the grade "général de brigade" or "division"
    If you're going to be promoted.... no need to change your feathers!

    We didn't have the good idea to take a picture of the hats that we've already made, so we show you a picture of Lassalle bicorne's in Stettin and a painting made during camp de Boulogne in 1804.
    Once we've made a copy of it, we'll display our version of it.
