Sales enquiries

Marked to "BATE" on the spine of the blade, which means this cutlass was made prior to 1807 as Bate became Reddell & Bate during 1806. The blade with crown over 8 view (inspection) mark and remains of GR cypher (for King George III), means this sword was in service on board a Royal Navy warship; who knows, maybe it was there at the Battle of Trafalgar.





The 28 3/4 inch blade is in very good condition, some pitting towards the point, some aged probably era nicks to cutting edge, but still sound and firm in the hilt. The blackened figure 8 guard with Broad Arrow mark and grooved grip in good condition. The original leather and steel chape scabbard is aged but good, though the frog button is missing. The cutlass sheathes and draws well.

A scarce item in well above average condition. A real investment at just £1250. Please quote reference U99. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0927-101x18x16 (2.094).
