WW1 era M1854 Dutch Cavalry
Officer's Sword, Sold
Almost certainly WW1 era, a scarce M1854 Dutch Cavalry Officer's
Sword, in good condition.
The maker's mark is hidden by the leather washer, but it looks
like that of Clemen & Jung of Solingen (as many swords in Europe
were made, ironically, in Germany before the war). In any event,
this is a scarce sword.
The 30 1/2 inch blade is in good condition, some light pitting
/ patina towards the point. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt and
grip in good condition; no grip wire. Steel scabbard in good shape,
the sword sheathes and draws well.
Not many of these around, so grab it while you can (too late!).
