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.

testimonials

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
