Sales enquiries

The folding guard (no locking pin hole) and curved blade tell us this sword is circa 1850-1855.

The 32 1/4 inch blade is in good order with a overall pleasing patina with the etching still reasonably clear. The blade which has no maker's mark is firm in the hilt. The hilt very good indeed for its age. The fishskin grip a little worn and grubby, the associated twisted grip wire bindings in very good shape. The folding section of the guard is good and strong. The leather of the scabbard is aged with surface losses, but generally sound. The scabbard fittings are loose (they will come off) but can simply be glued firm if required. The sword sheathes and draws very well. An above average example for sure. Further / full sized images upon request. Please quote item reference number D42 (733)
