Description

**SOLD**

1889 Pattern lion head sword, as worn by a German Army officer during the period 1940-45. The sword features the classic low profile dove’s head pommel, featuring a wire wrapped black ivorine grip with full wire wrap, mounted onto a stylised and decorative gilded brass back strap and ‘p’ shaped guard. The langet shows hand engraved stylised wreath, decorations etc. and blank shield to reverse. (Note the lack of nazi eagle and swastika which was an option for those officer’s not wanting to carry such symbols on their swords and is rarely seen).

The slightly curved nickel blade is 79 cm long and is maker marked to W.K.C. with knight’s head log trademark. There is light in and out wear, however the majority of the blade is free of wear and bright and clean, with the end tip squared.

The black enamel scabbard retains the suspension ring for hanging and small style drag. The scabbard is in very good condition, showing excellent age and the majority of the black enamel remaining. Overall length: 93 cm.
