Sales enquiries

When the Dutch switched allegiances away from Napoleon's France in 1813/1814, their heavy cavalry started to replace the French An XIII which they carried for a Dutch made variant, the M1814. This one is dated to the blade "1830" so it was likely used in the "Ten Days Campaign" (The Belgian Revolution).

The almighty 96.3 cm blade is in overall good condition, some pitting towards the point and around the forte, firm in the hilt. The heavy brass hilt in good order. The leather grip is original and good though aged, but has lost its twisted grip wire bindings. The very heavy iron scabbard has pitting throughout but is strong / sound. The sword sheathes and draws well, if a little loosely.

This is a really rare sword and one that should interest French An XIII collectors. Wow, just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AD41 (0507). Further / full sized images available upon request.
