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

This rare example, now with extensive 20th-century paint refinish to the hilt and scabbard mounts, is dated 1861 with Prussian inspection stamps and is maker-marked for Clemen & Jung of Solingen. This was the first pattern cutlass for the infant Prussian navy of the mid-19th century.

The blade, now heavily varnished, is in excellent shape. The bulk of the grip wire is missing. The scabbard has all its original issue stamps clearly visible in the leather and metalwork.

testimonials

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
