Clemen & Jung, “Z” within crowned shield above Solingen inside single-oval TM. Cast brass deluxe hilt fittings show light surface wear/age patina in the recesses of the heavily chiseled oak leaf pommel with acorn style pommel nut,  serrated ferrule, crossguard with oak leaf/acorn quillon block, and recurved stag’s head and hound’s head quillons.  Well detailed clamshell features a forest scene with Auerhahn on a tree branch within a plain oval border. Dark brown stag horn grip is perfect with no cracks, chips, or damage, and is complete with two gold/brass acorns w/oak leaves on the obverse.  Polished double-etched blade measuring 30.1cm in length grades EX+ showing light surface wear/runner marks with some light gray shadowing, but no nicks to the cutting edge.  Obverse blade features an 8 ¼” long etched panel with a raised floral and dove motif flanking the central inscription, “Wer waidmannisch Jagt wie sich’s gehört den Schöpfer im Geschöpfe ehrt” (Who hunts in the traditional/appropriate way honors the Lord and the hunted) in raised Gothic letters.  Reverse blade features an 8 ¼” long etched panel featuring a stag and doe herd running through a forest scene. Both etched panels as well as the laurel leaf motif on the blade spine retain 100% of the gray frosting, and blade is complete with the original dark brown pebbled leather buffer pad.  Black leather scabbard shows light age, but no creases, scuffs nor damage to the reverse stitching.  Upper and lower brass fittings show surface wear/age patina with a faint depression to the obverse lower fitting. Both the obverse and reverse lower fitting feature an incised motif of a stag in a forest scene. Nice Presentation Hunting Hirschfänger.  EX+/EX++ (25665)
