Sales enquiries

Not the sword he would have taken into battle or training (known then as an "undress" sword), but the sword he would have worn all other times. Similar to the general's sword of the same era but without the "Pas de Ane" rings (found just inside the guard).

The 32 1/8 inch blade, no apparent making left visible, is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt and wired grip all good, though aged of course. There is no scabbard. Who knows which officer once held this while charming the ladies after battle!

An iconic sword at a bargain price of just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference O45. Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
