Dress Artillery Tunic - Der Spiess

Hi guys, here is one of my favorite tunics from my collection.


It's a tunic for a Stabsfeldwebel of Artillery Der Spiess. It’s an early walking out dress in super condition!!! The size is large, perfect for display and it's made out of an extremely nice tricot wool. The collar is bordered with NCO tress, this is the early style tress before the diamond pattern. The tunic comes with an incredible pair of hand embroidered aluminum wire collar litzen tabs. The eagle is an incredible piece in the early and uncommon olive brown backing. The French cuffs have two parallel bands of tress to signify the rank of Spiess.

Re: Dress Artillery Tunic - Der Spiess

Thanks Seba.

This is a walking out dress tunic also referred to as a piped tunic. Not to be confused with the Waffenrock/parade tunic.

Nice one!
I can see it on a Mannequin with a nice Visor hat and a Book between the bottons! The Spieß was the most important guy in the Company!

Re: Dress Artillery Tunic - Der Spiess

Thanks guys.
Thomas, that would be nice but i am not collecting dress uniforms any more. I am using the complete mannequins for field impressions rather than dress/parade ones.
