Antique Bicorne Hat with French Badge

COLLECTIT! by SPECTANDUM
The bicorne or bicorn (two-cornered) is a historical hat widely adopted in the 1790s as a uniform item by European and American army and naval officers. Most generals and staff officers of the Napoleonic period wore bicornes, which survived as widely worn full-dress headdresses until the 20th century.

For COLLECTIT! by SPECTANDUM owner Guy Kuypers, the history of his collecting began at the Porte de Clignancourt in Paris with a Napoleon III case filled with Exotic Birds. The colorful birds piqued my imagination and became the beginning of a passion for Natural History, Ethnography, European Works of Art, Antiquities and Curiosities that drive me on all continents, looking for fascinating and rare objects. Whether they are natural or man-made, all have an interesting story to tell.

So, it is finally in this spirit that the collection, which encompasses Natural History, Tribal Art, Paintings, Sculptures and Curiosities from many cultures and periods in history finds its rationale and its roots.
