Sold Item Notice

A rare British general staff officer's mameluke sabre; be careful, the vast majority on the market are reproductions with plastic grips; I 100% guarantee this to be an authentic ivory gripped Victorian general's sword. Yes, although you can plainly see it is genuine ivory, I have ensured the grip is ivory using the so called "hot tip" test.

A lovely sword with etched 32 inch blade still very clear. The blade is firm in the hilt but the hilt has suffered somewhat the test of time. The ivory is chipped both sides (can be repaired with piano ivory repair paste) and the pommel roundel (a circular piece of brass) is missing, so the grip is a little loose either side; again, easily restored. The sword sheathes and draws well, the original brass scabbard with some age and dents but still looking very good.

An impressive sword that will display very well indeed and should do nothing but strongly appreciate in value. My reference number is 829 (375). Full sized / further images available upon request.
