Sold Item Notice

With pre-1802 British Royal Coat of Arms, the blade is almost certainly from Solingen, Prussia (many if not most quality officer blades at this time were) as no maker's mark but some etched swirls to the backbone of the blade. The British Cutler then adding a hilt / grip, and what a fine grip / hilt it is too.

The 32 1/4 inch blade is in good condition, some period very slight roughness to a section of the cutting edge which may well indicate use, the etching still visible. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard in good condition. The grooved ivory grip in well above average condition. The black leather with steel fittings scabbard, the leather has suffered the test of time with dry cracks and splits "repaired" with tape at some point. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A stunning looking sword for just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number AE99 (1042). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
