Contact Dealer For Price
This piece has been SOLD. The Piedmont Hussars fought variously as a Regiment, in the Italian wars, for the Hungarians and ultimately were a part of Napoleons vast multi cultural army. 18th century Hussar sabers have decreased in availability in recent years as the number of collectors who collect Napoleonic arms and accoutrement have increased. This example has a well crafted iron hilt with artistically subtle detail, the ribbed hardwood wood handle appears to have been refinished. The flat sided, broad blade has a false edge and the customary curve, it appears to have been cleaned. The original iron scabbard, has two suspension rings and a contoured throat to accommodate the hilt configuration. The drag reflects normal wear. The iron battle scabbard has not been bent and has no holes, although there are two small dents near the upper suspension ring, as shown. A good solid sword. Blade 26.25", hilt 4.47". Period 1775-1800.
