Social history
Dress sword salvaged from the German Fleet. The blade shows signs of wear but the hilt is in good condition. Very ornate, brass with ivory inlay. The top has a lions head which has its tail gripped in its mouth, thus forming a loop for the hand. The main cascades down from the lions head and turns into foliage to run down the handle. The name "Dresden " is engraved at the hilt. One green coloured eye is intact, the other one is missing.
