Sales enquiries

This sword was clearly for an active duty officer with its strengthened ivory grip and period sharpened 32 inch blade, still clearly etched, some bluing remaining. Marked to maker "Cullum, King's Cutler, Charing Cross", dating it from 1786 to 1789.

Cullum King's Cutler Charing Cross

The blade is still firm in the hilt, the hilt with some gilt remaining; small Tudor roses for England to both sides of the quillon a lovely touch. The ivory grip with brass central strengthening bar is in very good order. The leather and brass fittings scabbard very aged of course but it is great to have it; these are so rare on these swords as most perish. Further pictures available upon request. My item reference number 616 (228)
