Prussia – Sword – Officer – Lion Head – Garde Regiment

This is an interesting variation of a Prussian Lion Head officer sword. It has two small red eyes which serve as the eyes of the Lion. The head itself is highly detailed. The grip of the sword is the traditional shark skin, which shows some minor wear. The grip is single wire wrapped.

Below the tang we see a fine Garde Star. This makes this sword attributed to one of the elite Prussian Garde-Regiments. The sword is housed in a well made silver toned scabbard with one hanger. There is a small rust spot near the tip of the scabbard and there are a couple of dents as well. The blade is quite simple and has a single fuller and is in excellent condition. On the edge is hallmarked for the well known firm of quality swords M Neumann Hoflieferant Berlin. This firm was a military effects firm that specialized in selling uniforms, caps, swords, etc. I don’t believe that they actually produced swords but rather offered them under license.

An overall lovely example of an M. Neumann sword with a Garde-Regiment attribution.
