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.

testimonials

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.
