A really very nice gold and crimson sash believed to be that of general officer. The sash shows a good amount of age and may well be of WW1 vintage. It is of high quality construction the gold metal braid is good and uncleaned, it shows some minor wear and dirt marks. The inside edge is lined with soft red leather, this is all in excellent condition, we notice that there are a couple of very minor areas of loose stitching in a few places where the leather is attached to the belt but nothing serious. The end tassels are again good with some minor war to the tops and tips, the underside of the knot is covered with faded crimson velvet. The small toggle slides and allows a small amount of adjustment/tightening when worn. It will fit a 43-inch waist when fully adjusted out although this leaves the tassels quite high up. on its tightest setting, it will fit a 34-inch waist.
