Title Artillery officer's sword, 1854 model
Nationality German
Period c 1910
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Marked on the hilt 'F.A.46', the sword blade is engraved on one side with Lower Saxon Field Artillery Regiment No. 46 (in German) and on the other with a depiction of a field artillery team. The black painted scabbard (of which 90% of the original finish remains) indicates a post-1907 date.

This sword was probably the property of a 'Einjaeriger', a one-year volunteer from the middle classes, who served as a trooper, but had the right and the means to wear a sword of this quality when off duty, hence the regimental stamps on the back of the guard.

The EPNS finish to the hilt is somewhat worn. There is a good leather grip.
