In good condition, a circa 1785 British Naval Officer’s Sword and Scabbard by Cullum.
A short naval sword for confined on deck combat from a time when this still happened. Cullum of 12 Charring Cross (as per the scabbard locket engraving) means pre-1790, this style of sword is typical for circa 1785.
The 25 3/8 inch plain blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The guard in good shape. The fluted ebony / ebonized wood grip in good condition. The leather and brass fittings scabbard in good condition for its age. The sword sheathes and draws well.
From the time Britannia was asserting its rule over the waves, this is a great Great British naval officer’s fighting sword for a remarkably low price, just £1000. Please quote item reference AG01. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1315-101x19x16 (1.471).
