The Crown Prince's Sword

This sword was presented to the Treasury in 1810 by King Karl XIII to be used as a crown prince's sword. The signed blade was taken from a rapier commissioned by King Gustav II Adolf in The Hague in 1620.

The regalia, the baptismal font and the coronation cloak can be seen in the Treasury at the Royal Palace of Stockholm.

Made: The blade is signed Arnoldt Bracht

Material: Hilt and scabbard made from gold-plated silver, richly set with precious stones. The scabbard and the grip, which are covered in blue velvet with embroidered open crowns, were made by Christoffer Sergel.
