Many thanks Corrado. I had a fabulous time in Vienna. Highly recommended for Christmas vacation.

I found a similar sabre with a concave knuckleguard in the Heeresgeschichtliches museum (Military museum). At first I thought the hilt had received a knock, but apparently that is the style. Also interesting to see the red felt washer. I intend to give the sabre a gentle cleanup and make a washer for it to give it a dash of colour.
