Rare summer men's riding ensemble from the imperial period, ca. 1910. The ensemble consists of hat, shirt, vest, trousers and riding boots.
The riding hat bears the label: H. Wigersma Sz * Leeuwarden. Beaver or mole fur'. Wide black ribbon. Black rep ribbon with buckle. Paper/cardboard lined interior. Wide leather band all around (inside). Moderately well preserved. Signs of age and wear. Riding hats from this period have survived very rarely.
The shirt is white cotton fabric and probably bears the owner's initials. The vest and trousers are corduroy. The shirt is in excellent condition, the pants and vest are in good condition. Both have minor signs of age and wear.
The boots have Breitsprecher's label on the inside. Wilhelm Breitsprecher was, among other things, purveyor to the court of the German Imperial House and had his studio in Berlin. Among other things means at this point: if you look at the many noble coats of arms depicted in the boot, it becomes clear that he also supplied other royal and princely houses. Both the boots and the two wooden boot covers bear his trademark. Good to very good condition.
