Sold Item Notice

Marked "Blackmore" (outfitters) to the blade in a typically circa 1855 tablet form, Blackmore traded under his own name from 1848 to 1872. This is a particularly impressive sabre as it is not only very well etched, but also quite a bit longer than normal.

The impressive 35 1/8 inch blade is very well etched and in very good condition, and firm in the hilt. The hilt has been chemically period camouflage browned. The grip with age but in very good condition considering, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The browned steel scabbard is in good order but has a kink just below the lower suspension mount. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A well above average example and regimentally etched to the Montgomery Yeomanry; a sound investment at only £xxx (too late - now sold - but we will divulge the original sales price for a small fee). Please quote item reference O37 (1361). Further / full sized photos available upon request.
