Sold Item Notice

A lovely sabre with a great look; not just the highly curved blade, but also the black fishskin grip combined with the overall dark patina of the metal. These swords were carried by elite infantry flank officers at the early stages of the Napoleonic wars. They are quite a rare sabre, to say the least.

With traces of etching remaining, the 29 inch highly curved blade, designed to cut human flesh as if it were slicing off ham, is in good order, traces of etching (King George III), a dark pleasing patina, and firm in the hilt. The stirrup plus protrusion hilt is in very good order, the black fishskin grip having lost some of its colour but not enough to spoil the look, and has its twisted grip wire bindings still in place. A really good sword, really. Further / full sized images available. Please quote reference B62 (564).
