Circa 1830’s to 1850’s, the period of the July Monarchy and the Second Republic. Approximately 4 1/4 by 5 1/4 inches in size. Silver finish over copper, with integral mounting holes for attachment to the shako. The French cockerel is perched atop a panoply of arms with a central opening that would have likely displayed the regimental number. Very good condition.
