Sales enquiries

A lovely sword made by Hamburger & Co 30 King Street Covent Garden London, a well know and respected 1821P maker, the etching still very clear.

Hamburger & Co 30 King Street Covent Garden London

The almighty and impressive pipe backed 35 1/2 inch long blade, etched with royal cypher for King William IV (1830-1837) and maker's details, was once sharp and is still firm in the hilt. The wonderful flared steel 3 bar hilt has some patina but is sound (later versions of this sword the bars were closer to afford more hand protection but do not look as good). The fishskin grip and associated twisted grip wire bindings are good, some small wire strands slightly astray, some wear but not too much. The steel scabbard with signs of wear and a small kink is well patinated but still very solid. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

What a beauty. Please quote item reference number G92. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 984-1.18 (2.321)
