Sales enquiries

With worthwhile amounts of blue and gilt etch remaining, the gilt on the hilt is excellent. This sword was made between 1796 and 1801 and therefore is Napoleonic. The pre-1801 British coat of arms has the three fleur-de-lis in the top right hand quadrant indicating Britain's ancient claim to the French crown.




The 32 1/4 inch blade is in good condition, the etching still clear, firm in the hilt. The hilt with almost perfect gilt. The silver metal grip wire is good. The folding guard section works well. The leather and gilt metal scabbard is very good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A JJ Runkel blue and gilt in great order, yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference P97 (0280). Further / full sized images available upon request.
