A scarce German European 19th Century Cuirassier Officer's Sword with distinctive canted brass pommel particularly associated with German and Russian cuirassier swords of the period. Cannot be certain of the exact country of origin but know that Germany favoured this hilt style for their cuirassier officers and they carried these swords during the 19th an early 20th centuries. The grip is bound with leather and copper twistwire.
Sword blade with "CAST STEEL" stamped to the forte
The blade is quite interesting as it has a deeply impressed mark - "CAST STEEL" near to the blade forte. Would be surprised if this is a British made blade but the term might be generic as in the case of Eisenhauer on German swords, signifying a quality blade. This blade is double-fullered and with a clip point. There is no scabbard. Condition of the sword is good with a dark patina to the blade. Blade length is 33 inches (39 inches overall).
