Article about: I agree with gerrit. I have seen plenty of items pre WW1 and between the wars with either 'Germany' or 'Made in Germany'. If it was post WW2 would it not have been stamped W.Germany? Mark.

    I have a timeline for Daniel Peres Co. with an American connection in 1900..so to give some credence to the English word "Germany"..there may be a possibility.

    1792 : Established
    1801 : Daniel Peres ,, artisan without privilege,, was granted the right to use his imported English Polish for scissors. shears,and surgical instruments..but not swords and cutlery
    1895 : Business mfg. and sales of iron ,steel and brass wares. Tools for cabinetmakers, carpenters, lock smiths, shoe makers, saddlers, Edged weapons, straight razors, pen and pocket knives.
    1900 : American Agent : Magnetic Cutlery Co. 1013 Arch st. Philadelphia Pa. Owner Otto Maussner..sole agent for Daniel Peres Barrel Brand Cutlery.
    ( side note: I took a ride to 1013 Arch St..which is about 15mins driving..where the building used to be is now a small parking lot between 2 buildings in the Chinatown section )
    1926 : Gold Medal Philadelphia ( unsure of this entity..or what they produced )
    1934 : sales trademark "barrel brand" was used on Early SA, NSKK, and HJ knives. No RZM permit was ever acquired.
    1937 :Friedrich Str. Solingen. until present Daniel Peres exported his goods as of the 1937 date sold their products to the home market. 2 sales reps were hired from the Schweina Thuringia area.
    1967 : celebrated 175th anniversary
    2002 : until present location

    So..I always enjoy a good challenge..and will admit only the fact that this company had business dealings with an American company here in Philadelphia..which will support only the English word "Germany"...and may lean a little into the possibility..that Daniel Peres..may have exported these "sword miniatures" to the United States. Yet still there is no proof of this..but..there is a possibility. Great thread Gents!! Regards Larry

    Nice info Larry.
    They were very popular with naval officers who also used them on a watch chain & fob or on their desks.
    The naval ones have a similar type watch clip for attachment.
    Here a few examples what i mean with watchchain fob:
    Now i need to find one with a dagger used as fob, medals and awards are easy

    regards,
    Ger

    A very interesting thread. These were part of a collection I bought several years ago. Most of these were very well made. Some had knots. One had a felt washer. If I remember correctly one of the US model swords has Solengen on the blade. They are all gone now except the Luftwaffe.

    Thanks Kirby.
    I have seen some of the other swords listed on ebay.
    Some actually sell for a fair bit of money.
