A very good clean and fine Imperial German Model 1889 Infantry Officer’s Sword. This is a classic Imperial German hilt style that has become associated with German infantry officers of the late-19th and early 20th Century and right through the First World War. I would guess that this sword probably dates from around the First World War. It comprises a gilt brass hilt with canted pommel and a folding hilt guard that is styled with an Imperial German state eagle. The grip is made from a polished composite material and bound with brass twistwire.
Attached to the grip is the royal cypher of Emperor Wilhelm II (1888-1918). The blade is double-fullered and retains most of the original nickel-plated polish. Is stamped with a maker’s mark to the blade forte. Comes complete with leather sword hanger to the steel scabbard. Condition of the sword is very good. Blade length is 30 inches (36 inches overall).
