Hilt of Szczerbiec

The only surviving original piece of the Polish Crown Jewels from the time of the Piast dynasty is the ceremonial sword - Szczerbiec. It is currently on display along with other royal items in the Wawel Royal Castle Museum, Kraków.

Several royal crowns were made for King August II, Elector of Saxony when he was elected King of Poland in 1697. Since the original set was stolen, a new set was made for his coronation in Kraków. Today it is displayed in the Royal Castle in Dresden, Germany.
