Title Forestry/hunting hanger
Nationality German
Period c 1940
Sold

Nice example, with staghorn grips, of early wartime variety, maker marked 'Robert Klaas, Solingen'. Brass mounted hilt with copper plated iron scabbard mounts, with tiny traces of former gilding. The bottom mount staple is somewhat loose, but certainly original. The blade is in excellent condition, engraved with traditional hunting motifs.

This type of weapon was worn by junior forestry officials, both in the state and private sector during the Third Reich. The use of iron on the scabbard mounts suggests an early wartime date as brass was needed for more urgent purposes, eg cartridge cases. Nice black leather scabbard.

testimonials

I have in the last six months inherited my late father Alan Swain's police memorabilia collection along with much paperwork receipts etc. I would like to pass on to you my thanks for such good dealership with my father going back to the late 80s and well into the 1990s.

?20 postage is fine, can't wait for the sword to arrive. The last sword I purchased from you was in really nice condition.
