Nice Antique Imperial Russian Officer Cavalry Sword/Presentation Grade Blade
Album PLEASE SEE ALL 12 PICTURES AND OTHER AUCTIONS. You are bidding on Very Rare Imperial Russian Dragoon Officer Sword with high quality presentation grade blade. Overall length is 35-1/2". Beautiful multi-fuller blade marked at the base with trade marks of L.A. & A.I. Zavyatov Company, which was located in Vorsma village of Nizny Novgorod province. The Zavyatovs factory was existing since 1820. During the WWI the factory manufactured a small number of blades for combat arms. The blade configuration and blade weight made this sword equally effective for slashing and piercing. The sword feels great in hand. I have no doubts that this sword was used in combat. The brass pommel with a floral pattern. It appears the a cipher of the Emperor was removed at one time. The blade fits into the wood scabbard covered with dark brown leather and brass mountings which are missing screw. The leather is in great shape with some age scuffing, without any break or cracks. The blade cannot fit all the way into the scabbard due to the shrinkage or damage at the top of the scabbard and lose upper mounting which do not detract at all. The new owner may decide to fix it. Overall this is extremely rare high quality presentation
