Thank you for the information Midelburgo, so you suspect it was a Spanish infantry officers sword, and not belonging to a civilian?

Wholeheartedly agree that your sword predates the 1796 patterns. My point by bringing in the examples from the Dutch Army Museum is to provide conclusive evidence that Loades is incorrect in his...

The article is incorrect with regard to the numbers relating to a maker. Looking at the 1796 light cavalry sabres from the Dutch Army museum we can see a mix of inspection stamps and makers. I will...

Don't discount the possibility that it could be from one of the other German States, I believe that you found a similar sword that Herman Historica attributed to a cavalry officer from Saxony.

It's a nice looking sword, the fullering on the blade is quite distinct and almost reminds me of some of the British 1788 Pattern light cavalry blades. The hilt is of the French AN XI Chasseurs a...

Great looking sword, but technically not a rapier. More of a broad sword with a mortuary or walloon style hilt/guard.

Wonderful quality on the etching, I wonder if it wasn't an export sword. I've seen an example of a Dutch naval officer's sword by Prosser, so it is possible that Brunn exported as well.

Thank you.



Good on you. At the end of the day, this is all that matters. So much more than the opinion of some random on the internet.

But hopefully these will help give an impression.

What is the distil taper like on the blade? Does it go from thick at the base to very narrow at the tip?

It's an interesting looking sword, as you say very curvy, how long is the blade?
