Sales enquiries

The quill / clipped point (sort of one and the other) fullered blade and trading style of "Hamburger Rogers & Co 30 King Street Covent Garden London" indicates the sword was made around 1840.

The 30 1/2 inch blade is finely etched with fouled anchor one side, the British Coat of Arms the other. There are rust patches here and there, fortunately mostly away from the etched areas. The blade is firm in the hilt. The hilt retains a fair amount of gilt. The fishskin grip is a little grubby but generally good, the twisted grip wire bindings are complete and generally good. The folding guard section of the hilt works well. The leather and gilt metal scabbard has lost the chape / drag fitting, and has aged though the leather has some cracking it is generally quite good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A very nice example of a very fine sword that has weathered better than most. Please quote item reference M74 (1272). Further / full sized images available upon request.
