Sales enquiries

This is such a rare sword, and in exceptionally good condition. A General officer's mameluke with pronounced curve, which may well be a special order. With both steel (field officer) and leather field service scabbards; the later with wear, so it was worn most likely by a Brigadier (highest general field officer rank) or possibly Colonel.


The 29 7/8 inch curved blade is supremely well grey etched. The blade in near new condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt retaining most if not all gilt. The faux ivory grips are in very good condition with all gilt rosettes present. The steel scabbard in exceptionally good condition; it would surely be as new with some TLC and a good metal polish. The leather field scabbard and sword knot in good condition. The sword sheathes and draws well.

You really do not see many of these, especially not in this condition. Absolutely, 100% worth £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AC76. Further / full sized images available upon request.
