Sales enquiries

A good 1845 pattern by Buckmaster, 3 New Burlington Street, London.





The 32 1/4 inch blade is well etched and in good overall condition for its age, some patina patches, firm in the hilt. The hilt is mostly very good for such a fragile brass "Gothic" hilt with the folding guard section working well. There is a modern repair (small replacement patch) to the pommel (hint: get some model gilt paint). The grip is overall very good but some of thee lesser grip wire bindings are a little astray. The leather scabbard has a large taped repair section towards the chape but, what is nice is that it has retained its frog button (it os so rare to find these still attached). The sword sheathes and draws OK except it can catch around the repaired section when sheathing.

A good example with scope for improvement. just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference T68 (0844). Further / full sized images available upon request.
