    For sale: Prussian infantry sword c.1720

    I offer for sale a German or Prussian infantry sword early 1700's, could this sword have seen service in the Great Northern Wars of 1700 to 1721 against Sweden?

    Highly ornate brass hilt, guard consisting of 'bone joints' and twist bars, attaching to an asymmetrical, double dish, shell guard and globular pommel. A thumb ring guard is also present.

    The grip is wooden, nicely bound in brass grip wire, secured by a ferrule at each end. There is no movement between hilt and blade.

    The almost straight/slightly curved blade measures 33.5 inches long and has a deep single fuller and a false double edge towards the tip. The blade is remarkably sharp.

    Some wonderful etching remains: A bird in flight can clearly be seen at the ricasso and "the hand of God" emerging from a cloud holding a scimitar (a Solingen blade maker's mark perhaps?)

    There is some Latin script on the blade, but it is well rubbed and I cannot read it.

    I am wanting GBP£1,300 plus posting costs for this sword.

    Interesting sword Stuart looks like A Walloon sword but with curved blade fitted and looking at blade length I would have thought Cavalry not Infantry.

    Thanks Mike. Yes, I must concede the blade length suggests a cavalry sword rather than infantry.
