German WWII Army Trumpet Banner- This desirable offering measures approximately 14 ½ inches wide x 18 inches long and is a truly beautiful piece. The obverse has a heavily embroidered multi-piece German war flag. The reverse identifies the unit as infantry regiment “15” which was out of Bavaria as designated by the heavily embroidered crests located on the left and right side of this example. This trumpet banner is also further identified further as the “83rd company of the 167th brigade” as identified by the silver bullion numbering. Both sides show excellent detail and hand embroidered work. There are a number of small moth nips to the black field on the reverse. The obverse has a few light stains but is certainly in sound condition. The silver bullion fringe on three sides is 99% intact. One of the two leather belt straps is broken, but you hardly ever find any remnants of these on the trumpet banners. A beautiful display piece in sound, very good condition. If you have a copy of Volume I of my book series THE STORIES BEHIND THE TREASURES OF WORLD WAR II, you will see another example of this exact trumpet banner along with the schellenbaum and the drape for the same unit. I never thought I would run across another.
