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

This was the regulation infantry officer's sword for this state (ie Bavaria) as per the 1907 regulations, with black painted hilt and scabbard (some paintwork renewed). The blade is etched on both sides with 'In Treue Fest' among sprays of oak leaves, with the Bavarian coat of arms on one side only. There is no maker's mark.

This derives from the Austrian infantry pattern of the mid-19th century and, on account of its relatively small size, it is almost certainly a Great War piece.

Just to let you know that the bayonet arrived safely this morning by Royal Mail. I am delighted with it and it will be put to very good use at some forthcoming events.
