NO LONGER AVAILABLE


This European hunting sword dates to the mid-18th century. 61 cm. long blade is nicely engraved at both sides of the ricasso with floral motifs and dogs chasing game. I have counted a total of eight dogs depicted on the hilt and the blade. The owner of the sword must have been fond of his canines. Grip is wrapped in shark skin, which is in excellent condition, with no tears or flaking. Quillon is shaped as a dog's head, and is of sterling silver. Rudimentary disk guard has a small break in the front. Back of the blade is engraved with a talismanic arrow pointing to the blade's tip. Presence of the knuckle bow, which is not often seen on the hunting swords may suggest a military officer's, as opposed to a civilian weapon.
