WW1 Serbian Cavalry Officer's Sword, Sold
In overall good condition, a super rare WW1 Serbian Cavalry Officer's
Ironically made by Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Cie (Company) of
Solingen, the Central Powers (Germany, Austria, Hungary, etc.) invaded
Serbia and committed tremendous atrocities against the Serbs. This
sword bears the officer's initials (F B) to the scabbard and inner
guard / hilt.
The mostly plain 32 3/4 inch blade is in very good condition and
firm in the hilt. The hilt in good condition as is the black Bakelite
type grip. The bronzed steel scabbard is good but has lost its chape
/ drag, as a consequence the sword does not sheath fully.
What a rare sword and who knows, maybe the officer can be researched.
A bargain for just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item
reference U69 (0911). Further / full sized images available upon
