This is a wonderful piece of German military history almost 100 years old. If you know anybody who collects Imperial German material, they will be happy to hear about the discovery of one of these.
During World War I as the Kaiser's troops were called up from towns and villages throughout Germany to be deployed to the front, well-wishers handed out helmet decorations of this sort with the best wishes of those who stayed behind. There are photos of German troops boarding trains for the front with this sort of helmet decoration attached to their caps and/or steel helmets or attached to their overcoat like a corsage.
The item is made up of many small pieces - photos, gold metallic leaves, cloth flags, etc. The white plume at the top sticks up about 2-1/2 inches above the top photo and is fuller and more even on the ends then we were able to depict in our photo. A very rare piece of World War I Imperial German militaria.
