Rare Pre WW1 German Artillery High Ranking Officers Lion Head Damascus Sabre:
A fine Damascus Sabre belonging to Prussian Artillery high ranking officer.
The hilt is amazingly crafted and of excellent quality. The handle is the traditional style grip used for German sabre's however in this case the quality if higher. The Lion head pommel is iconic and in excellent shape.
The blade is a curved sabre realized in beautiful Damascus steel. The reverse of the tip being raised and have a raised spine for added strength. Some light nicks are also present on the blade.
The lower section of the blade heavily gilded and engraved with many floral patterns and designs. A scroll with a possible name and initials.
The scabbard is also in fine shape have a beautiful patina. One of the retention / hanging points is no longer there but it looks to have been done professionally perhaps due to dress changes or military procedures in how a officer sabre is carried.The next part I believe is very interesting addition to the history of this piece.
A truly amazing piece with very few on the market.
