Title Prussian navy cutlass
Nationality German
Period 1861
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This rare example, with most of its original black paint to the hilt and the top scabbard mount, is dated 1861 with Prussian inspection stamps and is maker-marked for P.D. Lunenschloss of Solingen. This was the first pattern cutlass for the infant Prussian navy of the mid-19th century.

The scabbard has shrunk, preventing blade entering last inch or so. There may be some organic material blocking the bottom end of the scabbard as comparison of blade and scabbard length match. There are several small nicks to the blade, which has extensive polishing marks. The bulk of the grip wire is missing.

testimonials

The day the blunderbuss arrives I could not stop looking and feeling the gun for at least one hour. My wife told me that I was sick........ I am very happy, it is a piece of craftsmanship! Well made! I have 5 blunderbusses but all iron barrel, also from England but this one is gorgeous with the Brass Barrel.

Please keep me informed when you have any other type of blunderbuss. Thanks my friend!

I received the item today, you had packed it well and there were no problems with customs. Overall I was happy with it although the blade was a little bit worse than I had imagined, however thank you for your efforts.
