Circa 1720 Prussian Infantry Officer's Sword,
An early 18th Century Prussian or possibly Austro-Hungarian infantry
Engraved with worn Latin etching "pro deo et patria"
or "pro gloria et patria" to the blade, although the blade
is long for an infantry officer, there are no signs on the etching
it is a cavalry officer's sword.
The curved 33 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition, though
the once glorious etching is worn / aged. Blade firm in the hilt.
The brass bone joint shaped and twist joint bar double shell guard
hilt is in very good condition for its age. The brass wire grip
appears original and is equally good.
As beautiful as it is rare, yours for only £1300. Please
