Misterious infantry officers sword, Austria, Czechoslovakia?

Hello friends, I have a misterious infantry officers sword, which I can not identify.
Is it from the monarchy, or post WW1?
Blade is short, 52,5cm long, 3cm wide, both side of the blade is marked:
Johann Marisci WIEN, the other side is a circle, and some motives in it, I believe it is the three crossed sword, which is post WW1.
Thank you for your help.

Hello Voci

As Zlatko aready mentioned, it is a Police/Gendarmerie Sabre from the period of the first Austrian republic.

Three swords stamp is Kovnica Sorlini in Varaždin, and it could be prewar production too, but in this case probably postwar, like mentioned by others.

The name of the producer is Johann MARISCH; Schwertfeger; Wien 8; Pfeilgasse 44

Marisch was a tipical producer of this kind of sabres before 1938-especially viennese police swords.

I would tend to assembler in this case or resseller, or he used only the blade of SHS production, as there is Kovnica stamp on right ricasso.

Hello Andy!
You are right, I totally agree with you! Nevertheless Marisch titled himself as "Schwertfeger".... ;)
