Title Officer's sword knot, 1896 model, Brunswick?
Nationality German
Period c 1900
Price £130.00
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This has major differences when compared to the standard Prussian officer's knot, principally the outstanding quality of the bullion work and the yellow centre to the base and the yellow fleck in the bullion collar at the top of the knot (hence the possible Brunswick attribution).

The leather strap appears to be a medium green, but this could have faded from blue, blue and yellow being the Brunswick colours. Prussian knots usually had black or silver in the base of the knot. Basically, the Brunswick attribution is a little tenuous, although whichever state this is from, it is not Bavaria or Prussia; it is simply a very good quality German sword knot from one of the smaller states.

The leather has been carefully cleaned and still retains its suppleness.

Today I received your flag. It's very nice and looks genuine to me. Beautifull crisp colors! It looks barely used. It's a nice addition to my ww2 collection. I would even say, one of my top pieces.

Thanks for your excellent service and top communication!

I will check your site more often to see if you have more nice pieces.

Just a quick note to let you know that my bayonet arrived safely today. Many thanks for the speedy delivery and overall excellent service! For its age this bayonet is in fantastic condition.

I will mark your website as a 'favourite'...
