Title Imperial German navy battle flag
Nationality German
Period c 1914-18
Sold

This would have been flown from frigates or destroyers throughout WW1 and, indeed, in the early days before the war. These were also used later on: one was carried in the 1923 Munich putsch by Heinrich Himmler - there is a photograph showing him at the barricades on the day in question.

It measures 1m 7cm x 2m. It has its original lanyard, some 60cm or so long, and is in relatively good shape, considering the wear and tear it may well have seen.

There are minor moth holes throughout the piece, but the colours are still nice and sharp, with only the white having faded a little.

testimonials

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
