Title Turkish infantry NCO's side arm
Nationality Turkish
Period c 1900
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Made by Horster of Solingen, this is a classic export number of the period. Interestingly, the maker's details appear both in German and Arabic script at the forte of the blade, along with a religious exhortation in a small panel in the middle of the blade. The scabbard is iron, as is the hilt, and both have much of their original finish.

testimonials

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.
