Description


This exceptional antique Edwardian cast sterling silver military mascot* ornament has been realistically modelled in the form of a Kashmir goat**.


This impressive antique silver goat ornament is embellished with details reproducing the animal's fur coat and anatomical features.


The goat features ornamental terminals to each horn, in addition to a headdress displaying three plumes above the regiment initials 'XLI'.


The mascot ornament surmounts a rounded rectangular shaped base embellished with terrain textures.


This exceptional example of antique silverware is the finest of its type you could hope to acquire.


* A military mascot (otherwise known as ceremonial pet or regimental mascot) refers to a pet animal maintained by a military unit for ceremonies or to act as an emblem. These animals cannot be declared as military animals as they are not employed for use in warfare as either a weapon or for transport.


** A Kashmir goat is the military mascot for Welsh regiments - originating from Queen Victorian in 1884. The British Monarchy has provided an unbroken series of Kashmir goats to this company from the Crown's own royal herd. The goat itself becomes a full member of the battalion and can move up the ranks based on how it performs in parades under the handling of the Goat Major; goats have been known to be promoted to Lance Corporal, a non-commissioned officer rank. Goats are believed to bring good luck, a military musing from a 18th century Battle of Bunker Hill story of a wild goat straying onto the battlefield, leading the Royal Welsh Fusiliers' colour party from the field.
