Sales enquiries

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 quote item reference K77 (1174). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
