Sales enquiries

The folding guard makes this a 1796 pattern (not a 1786 pattern). This pattern of sword was worn, held and used extensively by British infantry officers during the Napoleonic Wars.

The 32 1/4 inch blade is worn (etching now feint) but in good order and firm in the hilt. The brass hilt with patches of gilt remaining is good. The twisted silver metal wire grip has some gapping but is pretty good despite this. The leather and metal fitting scabbard is aged but good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A great Napoleonic sword for only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference P98 (0304). Further / full sized images available upon request.
