1882M Dutch Naval Officer's Sword by E & F Horster, WW1 era

Sales enquiries

A lovely sword, almost certainly WW1 era (just before) and therefore ironically made by the German maker, E & F Horster.



The 32 inch inch blade is superbly deep etched including to the spine, and in exceptional condition (only a very small number of tiny patina spots). Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard good, some wear to the inside lip (from being worn by an officer). The ivory grip is very good (feint tiny hairline cracks as to be expected with genuine ivory, one tiny little chip next to the back piece on side. The twisted grip wire is complete but one lesser strand is wandering. The brass and leather scabbard is aged (the leather has lost some of it surface) but is sound and possibly can be quite easily improved. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Well above average condition on a scarce sword. Bargain! £675. Please quote item reference AD70. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0579-1m (2.217).
