Title Prussian cavalry officer's sword, model 1889
Nationality German
Period c 1914
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

The blade is engraved with 'Mit Gott fur Kaiser und Reich', an oval portrait of Kaiser Bill and martial trophies. Interestingly enough, the engraving includes an Imperial eagle and crown, indicating perhaps colonial Schutztruppe.

A scruffy example with the scabbard possibly patched with plastic padding in parts and now covered in extensive matt black paint. The blade shows minor patination from wear, but all the engraving is still clear. The hilt is in solid white metal with some internal bruising at the base of the guard.

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
