This is an UNISSUED officer’s portépée for a sword from the Duchy of Braunschweig. It was correct for officers in Infanterie-Regiment Nr 92, Husaren-Regiment Nr 17, and Braunschweig’s single artillery Bataillon. The portépée is in spectacular condition, primarily because it remains how its workshop originally prepared it. It is neatly folded over one time, with yellow thread wrapped around it. The leather is supple and fresh. It sports three rows of golden stitching. The portépée’s acorn is made of brilliant golden bullion, with a blue woven interior. This almost impossible-to-find accouterment is in very fine condition.
It would make a great display. If you have a Braunschweig officer’s sword, it would look fantastic mounted on it.
