Sales enquiries

It is rare to come across this pattern / model of sword. It is good enough to be an officer's sword but the old type regimental markings "25 A A 1" show this was a state / regiment owned sword provided to a Prussian non-commissioned officer. The marking mean "25th Artillery Regiment, A Troop, Weapon 1", so you can take it from that, the NCO was an important member of the regiment. The well etched blade bears the Prussian Eagle plus the Royal Cypher of Kaiser William I. The sword was made by Clemen & Jung of Solingen.

This sword would almost certainly have been present during action in both the Austro-Prussian and Franco-Prussian Wars.

The well etched 33 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition for its age and firm in the hilt. The superb hilt is in very good order. The grip has lost its leather cover but is still good. The scabbard with a small ding one side and aged but overall good. The sword sheaths and draws very well.

A superb example and a great investment. Please quote item reference number I34 (1052). Further / full sized images available upon request.
