    Item details

    A Lions Head Artillery Officers Sword by the maker Robert Klaas, without eagle and Swastika but most probably dating to the Third Reich Period
    The grip is a black celluloid over a wooden core with eleven bands of double wire. The grip strap is brass with a gilt finish all nicely detailed over it’s full length from the ferrule through the lions mane to its head with its two faceted eyes
    The P shaped grip guard is decorated with oak leaves and joins the crossguard and terminates with yet another lions head within a roll. At centre obverse is the langet here bearing the crossed artillery cannons the reverse with a centre shield with the initials VB crudely scratched in. Sitting above the crossguard is the oakleaf decorated ferrule.
    Moving to the blade, the kissing cranes and Klaas name are visible below the langet. The blade is full length without damage and in near mint condition.
    The scabbard has perhaps been repainted at some time and shows light pitting underneath the paint. Two thirds of the way down is the classic dent often associated with being shut in a door during wear. There is little strength holding the Sword within the scabbard which will slide out freely.
    Finally, the Sword is complete with its sash type hanger which is in very good condition.
