WOW Ivan, you had a great show!! The detail, gilded Demast blades and amazing handwork is what this hobby is about! Premium pieces! I really wand to find just one of these Grosser hilt babies! TOP of the art here fellas!! Congrats my friend.. Kevin.
I can only echo the above sentiments of my colleagues.
Beautiful swords - Congrats.........!
Ger,in my opinion the GROSSER are the swords with much bigger hilt and mostly with bigger , wider blades.
This time I went to the Max to find only imperial swords,but I didn't thought I will be able to find these.
It was a great show for me.
Fred,thank you for your input, very interesting
Amazing works of art, stingray. Can you tell what material the monogram is made of? It looks like jewelry for the sword. All three are quite beautiful. Congratulations on adding then to your collection.

That’s the type of criteria that I use myself. From an old impromptu photo shoot here is a side by side visual reference of three as found Officer’s swords. Left to right - a larger Imperial period Artillery Officer’s saber, a relatively average size same period Cavalry Officer’s saber, and an early (brass hilt) TR period Army Officer’s saber.
