1794 (Hallmarked) British Infantry Officer's
Silver Hilted Spadroon, Sold
In sound / good condition, a scarce late 18C (London Hallmarked
1794) British Army Officer's Silver Hilted Spadroon Sword.
Bearing London (crowned leopard) hallmark with date letter t (for
1794) plus duty paid mark, the hilt of this sword is solid silver
and was once a very fine sword indeed for a British army officer
with a lot of status to maintain.
The 32 1/8 inch blade is overall good condition, a little curvature,
some small light pitting patches, a steady patina, mostly firm in
the grip, the hilt with a little movement. The solid silver hilt
is good but with a lot of black tarnish (will clean up); the pommel
with a little movement. The fluted cream ivory grip is mostly very
good, some small age / wear cracks but a lot better than most.
A very good well above average example. A good sword at a great
price, £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference
U26 (0855). Further / full sized images upon request.
