Sales enquiries

This example has a steel scabbard, for a junior general officer, a Major General or 2 Star General or slightly above. Steel as opposed to brass for senior (staff) generals as the implication is that lower ranking generals would be involved in field duties, which also means they tend to be in less pristine condition due to wear.

The 32 5/8 inch blade is in very good condition with just a couple of very small patina spots, and is firm in the hilt. The hilt with wear / age damage to the ivory grip sections; age cracking and a small section missing on the pommel turn (it is possible to make your own ivory repair paste as home - details gladly given to any buyer). The steel scabbard with some age; small splotches around the suspension rings mostly which again indicates harsher wear conditions than a senior general's sword would endure. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A lovely example of this iconic sabre. Nicely priced at £(too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AC66 (0326). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
