WW1 Era Imperial German Kingdom of Wurttemberg Army Officer’s Clamshell Sword By Weyersberg Solingen With Regiment Marked ‘B.K.122 L II’ to the Bezirkskommando Landwehrbezirke 122 (weapon number ) II (District 2) & Scabbard. Sn 16367 This is an original, WW1 Era, German Kingdom of Wurttemberg Army Officer’s Sword & Scabbard. The Sword is in very good condition. It has a single edged, fullered, 30” blade. The blade is manufacturer marked ‘Gebr Weyersberg Solingen’. The blade has just light staining consistent with age. Its brass cross guard, knuckle bow, & urn shaped pommel are undamaged. The hilt’s clamshell is cast with the heraldic arms of the Kingdom of Württemberg. The arms show an impalement of the three antlers that represent Wurttemberg on the dexter (viewer's left) side, and the three lions passant of medieval Swabia on the sinister(viewer's right) side and banner with motto ‘Furchtlos und treu’ (Fearless & Loyal). See page 462 of ‘Swords Of Germany’ by Angolia where an illustrated sword although different in form, has a hilt with the same Wurttemberg heraldic arms on the hilt. It has an undamaged chequered horn grip. The hilt is stamped with Regiment mark ‘B.K.122 L II’ to the Bezirkskommando Landwehrbezirke 122 (weapon number ) II (District 2) . The district commanders of the Bezirkskommando were high ranking Officers responsible for training and supply of Landwehr (military) districts (see page 32 of German Small Arms Markings by Gortz & Bryans where the Regiment mark B.K is Identified as Bezirkskommando’. The sword is complete with its original black leather scabbard with brass mounts. The mounts have some denting and the leather some service wear to be expected with age. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 16367
