The 32 1/2 inch blade is in good but a little worn condition, firm in the hilt. The hilt with some pitting and a heavy black patina. The grip has most of its original leather remaining but it is getting thin. The steel scabbard is also pitted and blackened from patina, but sound. The sword sheathes and draws quite well.

Iconic Napoleonic British sabre by a quality maker. Well worth £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference T50 (0756). Further / full sized images upon request.
