Hermes Holding an Anchor Sculpture By Hans Muller

Hermes holding an anchor sculpture made of spelter on a bronze base with commemorative plaque, artist Hans Muller signed and foundry marked K.K Kunst-Erzgiessereei, Wien.  The sculpture is on a wood base.  The sculpture is number 129, it is unknown out of how many. Hermes, from Greek mythology the son of Zeus and Maia, considered the herald of the god, able to move quickly and freely between the worlds of the mortal and the divine aided by his winged sandals as can be seen in this sculpture. Hermes is holding an anchor in one hand and on the other hand missing is the caduceus, staff is entwined by two serpents, sometimes surmounted by wings, symbolizing commerce and trade. The plaque on the base reads: 1.9.1883 – 1.9.1907.  This sculpture of Hermes by Hans Muller was probably given as a retirement gift to someone that worked 24 years in a shipyard or shipping company since Hermes was not associated with anything naval yet the anchor is part of the art work.

Original US Rare M1905/06 Experimental Patton Saber by Ames Sword Co.

Original US 1905/1906 experimental saber by Ames Sword Company in Massachusetts.  The bird-head like grip allowed for a better grip especially while riding.  A.S. Co., ordnance bomb and 1906 on one side of the ricasso and US on the other side.  The grip is made of sharkskin with the wires wrapped around.  A bit of damage on the bottom of the grip where a small piece of sharkskin has been taken off.  The blade is in good condition with blemishes from age since this piece is more than 100 years old.  The scabbard is probably made of pig skin and has shrunk over time exposing the wooden pieces constructing the scabbard.  The fact that this sword comes with its scabbard is very rare.

Austrian Marine Naval Cutlass Sword Model 1858 by FS Jung

Austrian Marine Naval Cutlass Sword Model 1858 used mainly for marine naval warfare while boarding enemy ships.  The cutlass is easy and smooth to wield with a very good balance, suited for fighting in close quarters.  In Austria this cutlass sword was called “Entersabel” or “Bordsabel”.  Up until 1858 the Austrian Navy used French captured cutlasses and in 1858 ordered its original design which remained in service till 1904.   On ships it was used mostly as a working tool for general use thus the scabbards are missing on most pieces and are extremely rare. The sword has a thick and forward heavy pipeback blade, a basket guard as for this kind of weapon. Produced by FS Jung with a mark of a cross surrounded by four smaller crosses.  Dated 1858. No scabbard. Grips have damage but blade and the rest of the sword are in very good condition. Measurements 76 cm / 30 inches
