Title Prussian officer's sword knot
Nationality German

 ADD TO CART

This is the standard Prussian officer's sword knot, worn by all arms from 1896 to 1918. The black leather strap has three strands of silver bullion running through it. The large size suggests pre-war manufacture, as war-time examples are usually considerably smaller, often having only two strands of bullion on the strap.

The leather has lost some 30% of its nap and there is a small patch of verdigris on one side of the barrel and some verdigris scattered throughout the strap.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
