WW1 Imperial German Lions Head Army Officer's
In very good condition, a WW1 Imperial German Lions Head Army
Officer's Sword with etched blade by Paul Weyersberg of Solingen.
Made by one of the very best German makers, Weyersberg.
The 30 /12 inch blade is well etched and in very good condition,
plus firm in the hilt. The lions head hilt still has much gilt and
its two ruby glass eyes (one is fainter than the other). Ebonies
grip is good, all the grip wires are here and generally good, but
a couple of strands are a little astray in places. Steel scabbard
is good but has lost some paint. The sword sheathes and draws well.
A really nice and above average example worthy of any collection.
