Non-Regulation Model 1850 Officer's Sword by Horstmann & Sons

32.5" blade with etched panels of military motifs and floral designs.  Shagreen and gilt brass wire wrapped handle.  Cast brass guard with eagle, backstrap with floral designs.  Metal scabbard with brass bands.


Blade has been lightly cleaned. The etched panels are very sharp and crisp. Handle with nice patina. Scabbard has nice plum color, the drag has few light dents. Overall a very good example of Civil War sword by this famous maker.
