Fine German Hungarian 18th C. Damascus Hunting sword
|( ID: e258 )|
The second piece from a European hunting sword collection. This piece is likely German or Hungarian by the design of the handle and the slavic or eastern Christian cross on the handle. The double cross of this type is also associated with Slovaks and Czechs so it could be a Bohemian piece. It dates to the mid 18th C. and also displays a fine vivid damascus pattern throughout as well. Very nice condition.
