Original German WWII Officer Army Dove Head Sword by F.W. Höller with Portepee
Original Item: Only One Available. This Army Dove Head Sword is rare Höller version. The hilt of this example is produced of quality brass base with gilt on the hilt and all of the details are still there. This sword has a raised motif. The dove head and backstrap are engraved with geometric shapes that extend into the side grip tabs. The "flat" P guard repeats this motif.
There are lots of hand enhancing and many of the surfaces have received pebbled decoration. The crossguard reflects a series of geometric devices and ends in a quillon with a swirl.
The langet features a raised out Wehrmacht eagle which shows excellent detail to his beak, eye, breast feathering, wing feathering, talons and mobile clutched swastika. The areas around the swastika are lightly pebbled. The grip of this example is a black celluloid over a carved wood base. The celluloid is still in perfect bright condition. The grip is tightly wrapped with triple wire, the center being a springy copper type which contrasts nicely with the outer wires.
The scabbard of this example is straight throughout. The paint of this scabbard is still bright and looks excellent.
The blade is 32 inches long. This blade is of highest quality steel and reflects a mirror bright nickel finish. This blade is in near full mint condition. The reverse ricasso is etched with the double ovals which contain the firm's name and location, F.W. Höller Solingen. The inside area has the familiar thermometer reflecting too many digits to count. The original blade washer is in place.
A very fine Dove Head Höller sword.
