A massive example of a Swedish Model 1825 Cavalry Trooper's Sword
A rarely encountered Model 1825 Swedish Hussar Cavalry Trooper's Sword of very large and heavy proportions. With large iron, three-bar hilt and ribbed leather grip. The hilt has distinctive double langets. The blade is plain and slightly curved. There are some markings to the blade and scabbard. Comes complete with a heavy leather and iron mounted scabbard. Scabbard is stamped to Christopher Zetterberg (1775-1852), a famous Swedish sword maker who trained in Solingen, Germany. This sword is virtually identical to the Norwegian Model 1825 Cavalry Sword - please see here. Is certainly a huge and massive piece and would have been carried by heavy troopers. NOTE: I previously listed this as German sword but subsequent contact with Scandanavian dealers has confirmed that this is actually a Swedish sword.
Condition of the Sword
In good overall condition and with commensurate age staining to the blade. Age toning to metal parts.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 35 inches (41 inches overall).
