Sales enquiries

Marked to Mphr & Speyer of Berlin, this Swiss Cavalry Officer's sword must be one the world's most functional yet aesthetic swords ever made. Light for its size, the agapanthus scrolled pierced hilt providing adequate hand protection plus ventilation, the thumb rest section of the backpiece and leather finger hold within the bowl to prevent slipping, the 84.5 cm straight blade) point and cutting edge still sharp), all going to making this probably the finest cavalry sword ever, as well as one of the most attractive. The British claim to have made the world's best cavalry sword with their 1908 pattern; I say this Swiss sword is better. This sword is a must for any serious collector as a benchmark to rate other swords by.

In very good condition, the blade almost devoid of marks and firm in the hilt, the scabbard in very good order too. The fishskin grip in good condition with ring bindings firm.
