An excellent example of a Prussian Model 1852 Cavalry Trooper's Sword. This model of German cavalry sword was carried from the mid-19th Century and right through to the First World War. It is of very sturdy construction and would have been carried by heavy cavalry troopers. This sword, like most Model 1852's is regimentally marked to both the hilt and the scabbard and appears to have been re-issued a number of times as was common during its service life. The sword comprises a large open, bowl hilt and ribbed leather grip. The hilt retains its original leather finger loop that was used to keep a strong hold onto the grip - in most cases, these loops have been lost or rotted away.
Sword comes complete with scabbard
The blade is plain and slightly curved. Comes complete with a heavy steel scabbard. Condition of the sword is very good overall - there aresome edge nicks to the blade that have been sharpened down near the point. Blade length is 34 inches (40 inches overall).
