    1930’s/ WW2 Era Italian Royal Air Force (Regia Aeronautica ) Officer's Dress Sword With Etched Blade & Brass Eagle’s Head Hilt. Sn 11651 - 11651

    On 28 March 1923, the Italian air force was founded as an independent service by King Vittorio Emanuele III of the Kingdom of Italy . This air force was known as the Regia Aeronautica (Royal Air Force). During the 1930s, the fledgeling Regia Aeronautica was involved in its first military operations, first in Ethiopia in 1935, and later in the Spanish Civil War between 1936 and 1939. After a period of neutrality, Italy entered World War II on 10 June 1940 alongside Germany. The Regia Aeronautica could deploy more than 3,000 aircraft & fought from the icy steppes of Russia to the sand of the North African desert losing men and machines. Italy produced Air Force swords drawing heavily on the contemporary Art Deco influences of the 1920’s and 1930’s. The Italian Air Force Swords of the 1930’s had a sweeping gilt brass Eagle head hilt (see page 77 An Illustrated Encyclopedia of Swords & Sabres By Withers). This is an excellent Italian Air Force Officer's dress sword and scabbard. It has the correct varnished wood black grip with finger grooves & wire binding, large Eagles head with crown pommel with feather representation grip strap and feathered Wing effect full knuckle guard all in brass with much of the original gilt finish present. Its 28 ½” tapering single edged blade is beautifully etched on both sides with panels of banners. One side has the Royal Eagle with Crown and arms. The reverse has heraldic arms and a crisp representation of a 1920/30’s era single propeller aircraft with pilot. The hilt is fitted with original washer and it's leather scabbard with ornate brass mounts and 2 hanging rings is undamaged. Price for this attractive Art Deco inspired Italian Air Force Sword includes UK delivery. Sn 11651
