Second hand costumes, opportunities

We did rental 12 years long, and we stopped because we don't have time enough.
We also buy sometimes second hand uniforms.

Some costumes were more adapted for movies or theater, we precise the best use of them, as much as we can.


  • Marshall baton of Marmont. No engravings on extremities

    PRECEDENT PRICE: 550 €.
    Alternance of bees and eagles seems perfect on pictures, but we know that this is not exacatly the one of original stick.
    It wouls be hard to explain, and probably only 1/10 000 of knowers will see the difference...Just one for sale.
    This marshall distinguished him in different ways...
    In this case he had a very special stick, with eagles and bees.
    NO OTHER MARSHALL EVER HAD SUCH A STICK!

  • Stirrups for light cavalry general officers.

    Very nice copy of an original pair kept in Invalides museum.
    Caution, size and width of feet were quite more narrow than now.
    As these stirrups have size of an original pair, width is only 8 cm as max diametre of inner circle.
    It can be too narrow for a use in re eanactment, nad proportion of cupper gives to metal a slightly pink nuance (not visible on pictures) that indicates a high proportion of copper.
    So if you are heavy and appreciate to stnd up on your stirrups, forget this pair;.
    For collection or decoration, there are nice pieces
