1854/1869 Model Danish Artillery Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

Quite a scarce sword, partly because they are often quickly and wrongly identified as German or Austrian artillery swords, which is not surprising, not least as this one was made by Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Company in Solingen; marked with their Trademark under one of the langets. However, under the other langet, there is "Seifert & Nørgaard, Kjøbenhavn".

The 32.5 inch blade is in good shape and firm in the hilt. The hilt also very good. The fishskin grip is worn but mostly sound (some patches are worn through). The twisted silver wire bindings are good. The original sword knot aged but good. The steel scabbard has had some damage and been repaired but is also good overall. The blade sheathes and draws very well. As you can probably not find another one to buy anywhere else, we'd say our price is a very good one. Full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item number B71
