Sales enquiries

With typical Woolley quality (e.g. much sturdier than many officer's scabbards, designed for field use), this sword dates to just before the turn of the 19th Century (before Waterloo) and has the British Coat of Arms which still retains the three fleur-de-lis showing George 3rd's claim to the throne of France (claim dropped in 1801).

The 32 inch blade is in better condition one side then the other; one side very clean, the other with age / more patina. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard good, as is the original leather grip (twisted wire grip bindings are good but a couple of strand turns a little wayward). Steel scabbard in good condition. The sabre sheathes and draws a little loosely but firm when fully sheathed.

This sword will continue to appreciate at just £1700. Please quote item reference number AF19. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1084-101-19-16 (2.377).
