1800's Danish-Norwegian Pallasch Napoleonic
cavalry sabre, sold
In good condition, Napoleonic era 1800's Danish-Norwegian pallasch
cavalry sabre; dansk-norsk kurvefæstede pallasker.
A scarce cavalry pallasch, Danish-Norwegian, Napoleonic. This type
/ style of cavalry sabre was used both as a thrusting and wielding
weapon, and the form remained unchanged in many cases from the early
17th Century right up to and beyond the Napoleonic Wars era. Markins
on the blade's forte (incomplete maker's or regimental markings
one side, "82" the other) indicate this particular pallasch
was made around 1800.
The 86cm double edged blade has been zealously cleaned over the
years but is in very good order and firm in the grip. The wire bound
grip is in good order also, some gaps showing between the twisted
wire but nothing much. The hilt in in very good shape. Well worth
the money; I think I have hugely undervalued this sword. Further
