Item #: BQ3320A -- A Rare 19th Century Austro-Hungarian Lionhead Pommel Saber -- $625.00
This saber is not maker marked but the double-etched blade carries (in part) the date 15 Marz 1848, commemorating the 1848 revolutions that shook Europe. The blade is well used and sharpened and is etched with floral designs. The guard is broken and missing part of the knuckle-bow and forward elements. The grip leather and wire are in excellent period condition. The scabbard is lacking; the sword deserves proper restoration. 98 cm. overall.
