The Yorkshire Wolds Cavalry Guidon 1798-1808
A most rare single sided example of pale green silk, thereafter beautifully painted with the unit title and other relevant emblems. In the centre in gold on a blue ground, 'The/Yorkshire/Wolds/Cavalry', this within Union sprays of roses and thistles in red, purple and greens. Around the central design evenly spaced are four decorated oval panels, two display small Union sprays in red purple and greens on a red ground. The other two show the White Horse of Hanover, white on red with a narrow green 'ground'. The guidon is still complete with its silver bullion fringe, 98.5 x 68cm including the fringe. Some slight loss of the pale green silk but very good condition for the age. Now mounted on a fine green fabric backing, framed and glazed.
