French Heavy Cavalry Standard

This is one of several variants of the French heavy cavalry standard. This type was carried, amongst others, by the Cuirassiers du Roi, Royal Cravattes, Bourbon and Clermont. The central motif looks odd shown in outline as here but when filled with the appropriate colour looks fine.
