German Army Officer's Dove Head Sword by WKC Solingen

This Army Officer's Dove Head Sword is stamped on the obverse blade ricasso. Maker on the blade is WKC Solingen. This is a very fine sword and it is rare to see quality brass examples like this having this much of the original fire gilding.

Grip: The grip is the black celluloid variety, over a carved wood base. It is wrapped with triple twisted brass wire, the center being slightly larger. The wiring is all there and looks good. The crossguard has an outstanding raised-out open winged eagle, which looks to the viewer's left. This eagle has lots of hand work to his breast feathering, head, wing feathering, talons, wreath, and raised-out swastika. There are also leaves on either side of the legs, which have hand enhancing. The quillon ends in a floral ball. This sword is a high quality, solid brass piece, having outstanding gilded finish. The gilding is near 100%, and only starts to thin at the very pommel area, where this was possibly a hand hold for the original owner. The hilt features a floral-like designs through the pommel, back strap, grip tabs, and the"P" guard. The ferrule also features raised-out oak leaf sprigs.

Blade: The blade of this example is an outstanding, high-quality nickel plate measuring 81,0 cm in length. This blade is in full mint condition. The obverse ricasso has the knighthead stamping with the firm's initials below, "WKC", reverse is stamped with Aug. Luneburg Kiel. The black leather washer is in place and nicely recessed.

Scabbard: The accompanying scabbard is straight throughout. This scabbard has good original paint, having a few carrying signs here and there but, overall, this paint grades at about 98% and has its original factory luster.
