It appears to be a model 1889 infantry officer's sword (degen) for one of the German states. If you can post a pic of the coat of arms on the guard maybe we can determine which one. Based on what I can see, my guess would be Württemberg. This sword if often called an IOD '89, for Infanterie Offizier Degen 1889. Are there any maker markers on the blade? I think I might be able to see the stamp of Weyersberg Kirschbaum & Cie.. I believe these were used from 1889 through WWI and perhaps even into the Weimar period. But I am out of my really stretching my knowledge of German military swords right now, so definitely do some additional research!
