This can be ascertained as belonging to the 14th Hussars thanks to the regimental specificities of his uniform : he is wearing the typical officers' busby with white plume ; it is specifically characterized by the absence of a boss, a long tradition in the Regiment, that will eventually be officially sanctionned in the 1900 in the Dress Regulations for Officers of the Army.

We can also see the regimental officers' dress sabretache pattern ; the Prussian Eagle (the Regimental badge since 1799) is worn below the royal cypher and crown.

It is interesting to note that he is wearing plaited cap lines, a feature more usually associated with the 11th Hussars.
