An original and scarce Austrian Napoleonic Cavalry Dragoon Officer's Sword. This sword would originally have had a fold-out attack hilt but that has long gone but the sword is still an attractive and seldom seen piece. The sword comprises a cut steel with scalloped edges to the knuckleguard, ferrule and slot hilt. The grip retains all of its original leather and steel twistwire to the grip. Blade is plain and single-fullered.
Complete with leather and brass mounted scabbard
The sword comes complete with a contemporary brass and leather mounted scabbard with frog button to the locket. These swords would have been carried by light cavalry units and was used from the late-18th Century right through the Napoleonic Wars. Austrian swords are not common in the market, particularly in Western Europe and the USA, which is quite strange considering the influence and size of the Austrian army during this period. Condition is good with a fine dark age patina to the hilt. Blade length is 30 inches (35 inches overall).
