Title Mecklenburg officer's sword knot
Nationality German
Period c 1880
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This knot would have been worn by army officers in Mecklenburg-Schwerin and Mecklenberg-Strelitz, a small German dukedom on the Baltic. These knots rarely appear on the Anglo-American market and, when they do, are rarely recognised for what they are.

There is a small patch of damage/corrosion on one part of the strap, together with a little tarnishing throughout, but essentially it is in excellent shape for its age.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.


[Edged Weapons : Swords : German : 19th Century]

Excellent information, Chris, you've been making a big effort! I will spell it out more closely (I'm a historian!) and don't think Bezdek can add much more.
