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.

Just to let you know that the bayonet arrived safely this morning by Royal Mail. I am delighted with it and it will be put to very good use at some forthcoming events.
