    Bavarian Court Sword Made by Eickhorn With a Munich Distributors Mark, circa 1890. Narrow, double-edge 31" blade with ornately etched panels on both sides set off against a blued background. The etchings feature patriotic vignettes and floral decoration. Three panels on each side are accented in gold. The brass hilt retains traces of the original silver wash with a reclining lion on the counter guard which utilizes lion head finials. Lion head pommel, mother of pearl plaque grips with a silver-washed brass crown/sunburst on the obverse. The black leather scabbard has unadorned brass mounts and is in excellent condition. This beautiful sword also retains the original red velvet washer. Though this sword was manufactured by Carl Eickhorn, it was distributed by the Munich firm of "M. Zöltsch". Excellent condition.
