Click on an image to enlarge
This is a nice original classic model 1860 cavalry officer saber with an etched blade. These were used by cavalry officer's on both sides during the Civil War. This one has the desirable mark of Horstmann & Sons of Philadelphia etched on the base of the blade. Horstmann was one of the premiere suppliers of military items during the Civil War. The blade is full length and has an attractive look with no nicks. What is special about this sword is that it has the officer's style blade. The blade has the original engraving on each side with extensive floral and patriotic designs. The lower part of the etching of the blade on the front side has the Horstmann maker's mark and the Philadelphia location. On the back side of the blade it has the King's head trademark stamping. This is the marking that lets us know that Horstmann imported the sword from the Weyersberg firm in Solingen. The wire on the grip is the original spring style wire that is flanked by the single strands of wire and they have a very pleasing look as you can see. Under the wire it has the original sharkskin grip intact with a great look all over. The brass guard and pommel have a fine mellow golden color to the patina. As you can see the guard and pommel cap have the floral designs which is another trait of the sword being made for an officer and not the regular enlisted man. It is accompanied by the original scabbard that fits like a glove. This is a beautiful cavalry saber & scabbard with the officer's etched blade that will look great in your collection.
