Title Sepia photo of Austrian Hussars
Nationality British
Period c 1880-90
Price £40.00

This sepia photograph, pasted on a card page torn from a British military album, shows a KuK Hussar regiment on parade. There are officers and trumpeters in front, with the bulk of the regiment in double files behind. The caption in English underneath simply says 'Austrian Hussars'.

The photograph measures 22 x 17cm. There is some buckling and shrinkage of the card backing and the left hand side of the photo has minor abrasion damge to the detail. The overall colour is a somewhat yellowed sepia.

Very pleased with the cavalry sword, a very unusual piece.

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.
