Lol ... I see what you mean Clive.. where are the bikini clad women in that photo?

Klaus - I got HB blood... bring on the trumpets! You'll recognise the HB house here I'm sure... And yes.. an INS exclusive - Souldeep wears those Bavarian lederhosen damn good innit! Must say - I've always found the Bavarian women most accommodating. I raise a stein and call Prost!

The perfect Bavarian lederhosen can not buy, that can only inherit. A decades-old family piece it had to be, at best one in which his grandfather has hunted the deers.
Many decades old and never washed, this makes the right patina! :D



The Charivari is a silver chain attached to the various trinkets. It is mounted in front of the codpiece of lederhosen. - Depending on your taste and purse - silver coins, animal teeth, crystals and the like. Even animal paws were once common. All pieces are mounted in silver and attached to the chain.

Formerly were not allowed to buy the pendant - one had to earn. Either in the hunt, in the fight with the neighboring village or even sometimes in a love affair. The Charivaris inherited in families and being maintained.

Old pieces can have a value in the five-figure euro range.

Charivari are Bavarian Sagemono

But, seriously, Klaus, those are absolutely INCREDIBLE! I've seen nothing remotely like it . . . . . are there auctions or do they sell privately only?!?!?

So, considering the "overture" of the Bavarian lederhosen "Jesuschrist" Mod. Here the Swiss Geisha with Contemporary Tonkotsu, and heavy bronze Netsukes Bells of Swiss Farmers.... The Geisha? Sorry, she is not accommodating...

David, in local auction houses is mostly a showcase with old Charivari and healthy prices.

These are mostly new copies:

P.S. A test for really old Lederhosen is: They are so hard and stand on its own.
