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

This is modelled on the French infantry officer's sword, model 1882. However, the hilt is made of gilding metal, whereas the French examples have a nickel silver finish. The hilt is buffalo horn. The blade is nicely engraved and there is a German maker's mark at the forte.

The scabbard has a nickel silver finish with patches of corrosion here and there, but 85%+ still remains. The sword knot has had its leather strap replaced by a piece of modern nylon cord.

The parcel has arrived - at the time you indicated.

The sword lives up to expectations and looks even better than on the website. The detail and etching is superb.

Thanks so much for your help and the extra information.
