Sales enquiries

A near perfect example (the top strand of grip wire is missing) of this famous and iconic cavalry sword / sabre, complete with a couple of period nicks that indicate this was used, perhaps in the French conquest of Algeria.

The very impressive 38 1/4 inch slightly curved period sharpened blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt and grip all good (slight scuff to one bit of grip leather, top most twisted grip wire twist missing). Browned steel scabbard in good shape. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A superb example of a scarce sabre. Please quote item reference N57 (1316). Further / full sized images available upon request.
