Officers Kiver Shako of the Izmilovsky Life Guards Regiment from the Russian Empire dated around 1910 on display at the Danish War Museum in Copenhagen
Izmilovsky Life Guards Regiment was first formed in 1730 as a personal guard to Empress Anna and named after the Romanov ancestral estate of Izmaylovo. Before the start of the First World War their ceremonial chief was Emperor Nicholas II.
