    WW2 Era Turkish Army Officer's Dress Sword With Etched Blade ‘Ankara H-O 1.3.1940’ & Nickel Plated Brass Scabbard. Sn 12896 - 12896

    With the opening up and consequent modernisation of Turkey to the West during the 19th century, the Ottoman Empire adopted many European influences both in Military dress and equipment. This was especially so with regards to swords. Many Turkish swords in that era were manufactured in Germany or based on German patterns (see page 216 of World Swords by Withers where a similar sword to our example is illustrated). This is a Turkish Army Officer's Dress Sword and Scabbard. It has a wire bound black grip with finger grooves. It has a brass knuckle guard and curved pommel with lanyard ring. The cross guard has 2 langets one bears the Turkish ‘crescent Moon & Star’ symbol. Its 31 ¼” tapering curved blade is beautifully etched on both sides with foliate panels. One side incorporates banners and arms and the other side has the Turkish ‘Crescent Moon & Star’. The riccaso is etched . ‘Ankara H-O 1.3.1940’. Its brass scabbard with 2 hanging rings and large shoe is undented and retains most of its original nickel plating. Price includes UK delivery. Sn 12896
