English early 19th Century Small Sword, label
dated 1809, Sold
In good to very good condition, a very nice early 19th Century
English Small Sword, with a label showing the date 1809
There is a clearly very old label attached to scabbard which someone
will probably be able to read / decipher, the word / name "Johnson"
and date "1809" appear.
The 29 1/2 inch colichemarde blade is in good order but the etching
is now feint. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt overall very good without
any losses or damage. The leather and metal fittings scabbard is
aged; the metal chape is gone, the point therefore sits proud when
full sheathed. The sword sheaths and draws well but is tight towards
the end when sheathing.
A very good example and perhaps the label has some great story
to tell. Our price is £? (too late, now sold). Please quote
item reference P16 (0201). Further / full sized images available
