A Fine and Scarce English 17th Century Hunting Naval Officer's Sword
With deep decoration to the shell guard and distinctive ribbed pommel, this English 17th Century Hunting Naval Officer's Sword, has a staghorn grip and the blade is heavily impressed with a King's-head mark usually associated with the Wundes sword making family of Solingen, Germany. These staghorn hangers were carried by huntsman but also became extremely popular with English naval officers of the late-18th and early 19th Century. This was due to its short length that enabled the officer to use the sword effectively within the cramped confines of a ship's deck.
