A highly unusual 19th Century US Navy Brass-hilted Officer’s Sword – Horstmann. This US Civil War period naval officer’s sword has a very well etched blade made by German sword maker, Horstmann and Sons. The brass stirrup hilt is reminiscent of US infantry militia swords of the period but I have never seen one that is associated with the US Navy. Both hilt and blade have always been together as evidenced by the smooth and darkened tang button.
Sword decorated with numerous naval motifs
The blade is decorated with numerous motifs including US eagle, anchor, scrolling foliage, stars and stripes shield, USN scroll and military lances. The blade forte is stamped with the King’s head German Weyersberg sword making motif. Condition of the sword is excellent and the blade etching is still bright and crisp. No scabbard. A rare piece. Blade length is 30.5 inches (35 inches overall).
