    Description

    Two Imperial German Officer's Style Swords. The first is clearly made for a child. Iron hilt with imperial Prussian eagle in the basket with all proportions being very diminutive. Just 29" overall with 24" blade which is inscribed in the fuller "Dem lieben Tungen 14. 2. 11." Very small sharkskin wrapped grip with twisted wire wrap. Blade about mint, just a few minor stains, hilt also a bout perfect with dark untouched patina. Scabbard excellent with just some wear on the paint. A very rare little sword. The other is a rather small Prussian gilt mounted sword, 32" overall with folding brass guard retaining 95% of the original gilt. Leather finger loop, grip about perfect, wire just a bit loose. 26ΒΌ" blade with two narrow fullers about mint. Black painted scabbard also about perfect with just a few scattered scratches chips on the black paint. An interesting and unusual pair of swords.
