Please also see my listing for an equally rare Sergeant's sword of the same pattern; 1798P Rare Napoleonic Scottish Highland Sergeant's Broadsword.

Woolley & Co

This is an exceptionally rare and fine Waterloo era Scottish highland officer's sword; many if not most such officers having fought Napoleon's Imperial French army, this item has a very good chance of having been there!

Rare to find one with the prized Woolley & Co name and "Warranted" to the 84.5 cm blade's fuller either side. This famous critically English maker's name increases the prospect this sword was carried by serving front line officer. The brass hilt, so prone to damage given the relative softness of that metal, is in very good order save for one small easily repairable break to one of the bars.

Warranted

Item reference 551 (NZ1). Additional / full sized images available upon request.
