Officer's Mameluke, Sold
In very good condition, a superb Firmin made Victorian British
Army General's / General Staff Officer's mameluke sabre.
Please note: We 100% guarantee this is an authentic Victorian British
infantry general officer's mameluke, not one of the many Indian
made reproductions currently being sold as authentic on the market.
Made by "Firmin & Sons Sword Cutlers to the Royal Family
153 Strand London". A lovely example from this fine Victorian
The 29 1/2 inch blade, well etched with crossed sabre and baton
emblems for a general officer, plus Victorian royal cypher and scrolls,
is in very good condition for its age. The blade is firm in the
hilt. The ivory grip sections are good except for one small loss
as is so common with antique ivory, but the rest is good and free
from apparent cracking, etc. The grip rosettes so often lost are
present and good. The original crimson and gold sword knot is aged
and worn but attractive and sound. The steel scabbard indicating
a field officer is good, though a little tarnished. The sabre sheathes
and draws well.
This is a lovely example and a great investment. Please quote item
