Sold Item Notice

The hilt of this 1786 Pattern British army officer's spadroon sword is in exceptionally good condition, the blade in good condition; I considered whether the hilt therefore might be a replacement, but I do not think so and even it if were, it has been done to exacting standards. The checkered ivory grip is undamaged (small hairline ivory cracks do exist along a couple of corners, as to be expected) and very clean, the gilt work sparkles almost like new. The 32.5 inch JJ Runkel Solingen marked (to the spine) blade still bears a lot of etching, although the blue and gilt has gone, and is still firm in the hilt. The blade tip and initial / front cutting edge is still sharp. There is no apparent looseness anywhere.

Spadroon etching

Spadroons are few and far between, and this is a quality version to be sure. As such the minimum price I would accept for it is £xxx (too late, now sold). Further pictures available upon request. My item reference number 142 (37)
