RARE Personal Hunting Hirschfanger of the Duke of Saxe-Coburg- Gotha, Duke Carl Edward
maker: No Maker
condition: Exc./Exc+
item number: 13354
price: PRICE ON REQUEST

This Royal Hunting piece was the personal Hirschfanger of Duke Carl Edward, the ruler of the Duchy of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha (1900-1918). The hilt is quite unique featuring an ornately chiseled silver pommel in the shape of a boar's head. The snout of the boar has an attachment for a delicate double silver chain, which attaches to an acorn on the crossguard. Massive double-engraved blade features a unique wave-like spine with a presentation date of "1872". Comes with its original massive over-the-shoulder baldric, which was worn outside of the hunting outfit. Attached to this beautiful bullion sash are some of the finest silver ornaments that I have ever encountered on this type of item. Included are a beautiful 3-dimensional stag head as well as a delicate Imperial crown with ornate silver work plaque with the raised initials, "C.E.". In my many years in this hobby I have only encountered two (2) royal pieces of this type, and only know of one (1) additional piece, which is in a Museum in Germany. Certainly would be the centerpiece of any collection. Museum quality and a great investment opportunity!
