Late 18th Century Polish Sabre




This sabre most likely of Hungarian origin would have belonged to one of the "original" hussars, the light cavalry that the world emulated for almost two centuries. The blade made in Solingen bears the image of a Hussar, some talismanic engravings and also a coat of arms that appears to be one of the Leliwa family emblems, potentially the Zienkowicz branch of the family. Interestingly a pre regulation Polish sabre that can actually be confirmed to be a Polish sabre.


The grip is worn down to wood and the engravings are faint on one side. The tip has been reprofiled. This sword can be yours for £445 or best offer.
