Prussian 1852 / 1879 Model Cavalry Officer's
In good overall order, a well etched M1852 / M1879 Prussian cavalry
officer's sabre with the owner's name "Eisenhauer".
Marked to makers WK & C (Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Co) on
the ricasso and owner's name "Eisenhauer" etched to the
blade, this is a very good M1879 Prussian cavalry officer's sabre
with pipe-backed blade.
The 31 3/4 inch blade is very nicely etched and firm in the hilt;
the blade with some age and patina. The hilt is solid with a patina
all over. The grey fishskin grip is in good shape though has lost
its twisted grip wire. The scabbard is in good order and the sabre
sheathes and draws well. Further / full sized pictures available
upon request. Please quote item reference number B48 (541)
