Sales enquiries

Clearly for dress rather than battle, the sword is, non e the less, a very attractive one courtesy of the gilt hilt with Austro-Hungarian double eagle to the cartouche.






The plain plated 28 1/4 inch blade is firm in the hilt. The hilt retains most gilt and is overall very good. The faux fishskin grip is very good, as is the single strand twisted grip wire binding. The light steel scabbard has light (treated) rust. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Quite a rare sword. Only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference U70 (0910). Further / full sized images available upon request.
