Bokharan Senior Officer c1870.
Inspired by Fig 13 in Ian Heath's Foundry book Armies of the 19th Century: Central Asia and the Himalayan Kingdoms .
This Bokharan toksaba (or ming-bashi)--a senior field-grade officer from around 1870--shows Russian influence. Although colors are not certain, it seems likely that the coat would have been red with gold epaulettes and rank insignia on the sleeves. The trousers might have been red, black or the more traditional yellow. There was a broad stripe down the seam.
NOTE: All figures are sold plain (not primed) and without the bases shown.
