WW1 era German Naval Named Officer's Damascened Sword

Sales enquiries

Made by Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Cie, with a superior (faux / etched) Damascened blade, engraved on the folding guard section to the original officer / owner "Brackebusch"; this sword is wholly researchable.




The 29 13/16 inch blade is well etched and in good condition save for a patch of quite deep (now inert) rust pitting around the spine, thankfully away from the main etchings (ships and fouled anchor). Blade firm in the hilt/ The brass hilt with steady dark bronze tarnish is in good shape, the folding guard section works and locate properly onto the securing pin of the top scabbard locket. The ivory grip in very good condition, as are the associated grip wire bindings. Original sword knot (aged and frayed) properly and period tied, suggesting it may be a surrender item. The leather and brass fittings scabbard is aged, the fittings tarnished, the leather a little shrunk, but overall sound / fairly good. The sword sheathes and draws quite well.

Nice sword with research potential. Well priced at £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference U50 (0897).
