Title Prussian cavalry officer's sabre, 1852 model
Nationality German
Period c 1890
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This fine sabre has a splendid damascus blade, slightly altered at the point, perhaps blunted and then resharpened. The top line of the German inscription translates as 'Baron Max von Brenken to his dear friend', but the recipient's name (second line) is almost illegible. The grip is fishskin bound with silver wire.

No maker mark, but the damascus is traditional construction, not an engraved simulacrum.

The bayonet arrived safe and sound this morning. It is absolutely magnificent. I am thrilled to bits with it. Thanks for all the interest you have shown.

My very best wishes, and thank you, very sincerely, once again.
