|WW2 Italian Artillery Officer Lion Head Sword|
I believe this is a WW2 Italian Artillery Officer lion head sword marker marked with the logo of German sword maker of Horster Solingen. Triple etched sword blade in good condition. White celliod (plastic) handle in good condition with no chips or cracks, wire starting to come loose a little bit n spots. No scabbard. Italian fascist type design on one side of the crossguard with matching design in center of the blade etching. Approx 27 1/2" blade. A very unusual sword that I have not seen before and still researching. Overall a very nice high quality sword. If you have any additional details on this type of sword please let me know. Or, let me know if you want to make an offer on this sword. This one was picked up from out of the wood work from the Charlotte area.
