$ 0.00

A Rare Antique Dutch Horseman's Saber, circa. 1660-1690.  33" curved single-edge blade. Iron pommel in the form of a Lion's head.  Missing the twisted iron wire grip (only the wood core remains).  Robust iron knuckle bow into the counter guard; thumb ring; deeply curving quillon.  39" overall length.  All metal surfaces have salt and pepper pitting and a dark age patina.  This type of sword was very popular and was used throughout Europe and Colonial America in the 17th century.  A very fine original sword that screams authenticity.

Note; No scabbard.
