A rare, relic item from the turret of a german Tiger 1 panzer, consists of a bevelled gear assembly in an armoured housing, which still turns and which would have formed part of the gun elevation or turret traverse manual system. The stub shaft from the base of the housing looks to be possibly the type that would take a operating hand wheel.

The cooling sleeve is as it was on the weapon with sight fittings etc and the channel inserted to take the cable gives the impression of a barrel inside. Bolb holder is fitted but requires wiring. I do have another example and they look great with a helmet shell as a shade, same price for each one.

Having checked photo's of the actual R34, the model not an exact copy and looks more like the R100 but a large amount of work has gone into its build and is a one-off item, maybe intended as a outdoor marker but never used as such, its in very good shape with just a couple of small patch repairs and to me looks to be pretty old, possibly even pre-war in age.

Warren's Division" and under it is "Feb.28.1900" and "Dorset Regt" also to left and right are the names of Buller & White, the generals involved.

Large and elaborate, original El Grande, mexican spur of the old west in the 1800's, steel construction with silver inlay and large, many pointed star that gives these spurs that distinctive jingle when walking.

Interesting item of horse furniture, it being a large metal skull & cross bones of the 17th Lancers and would have been attached to the harness of the horse. It is of heavy cast metal which has age darkened to almost black, difficult to date but possibly quite early and the metal fittings to the rear have mostly corroded but it still makes a great historic display item.
