More About this Item


Description: Strong single-edged blade with double fullers on both sides and double-edged point, on the back etched maker's signature "frères Weyersberg à Solingen" and French acceptance mark "AP" at the root of the obverse. Relief knucklebow hilt made of gilded non-ferrous metal with four obverse buckles and an inlaid, massive silver cross on the knuckle shield, Grip coated with dark fish skin, triple wire wrap. Leather scabbard with gilded mountings from non-ferrous metal and two moveable suspension rings. Spotted blade, chape of scabbard replaced. Traces of use and age. Length 109 cm. The Mousquetaires gris formed the first company of the French King's guards. These life guards in whose ranks noblemen served, guarded the monarch and also were in battle service. It existed from 1622 to 1815 and owed its name to the silver-grey horses the musketeers rode. It were these life guards of the King that Dumas referred to in his novel "The Three Musketeers". An outstandingly rare and high-quality sabre from the times of the First Restoration.

Shipping: Hermann Historica is pleased to ship purchased lots on behalf of absentee bidders.

Importantly, absentee bidders should note that purchases made using our absentee bid form, by either telephone or in writing, that shipping instructions must be indicated by ticking the box on the bid form. In the absence of this instruction we will automatically assume that the buyer will require Hermann Historica to ship on his / her behalf. The standard shipping charge will cover the costs of packing and postage, together with insurance against loss or damage in transit only. These charges will be recorded on the buyer`s invoice (the insurance premium calculated at 1% of the aggregate purchase figure)

If shipping costs are not recorded on the buyer´s invoice it means either that the buyer intends to collect purchases in person or that standard shipping is not possible. In the latter case this may be for reasons of the abnormal size, weight or fragility of the purchased property, it may also result from the specific application of legal requirements.

In this instance we shall obtain a freight quotation on behalf of the buyer. Upon subsequent receipt of confirmed instructions Hermann Historica shall be pleased to proceed with shipping.



Important

Due to changed regulations it is unfortunately no longer possible to send any kind of firearms from Germany to foreign destinations by regular mail service. We will, if possible, organise international shipping through forwarding agents or specialised courier services, however, with the consequence of noticeably higher shipping costs.



Information importante pour les expéditions
