Sales enquiries

Engraved "Tatham to His Majesty. 37 Charing Cross Near The Admiralty", dating the sword from 1800 to 1801. Flank officers much preferred these shorter sabres to slice the enemy at close quarters if they got close enough to make pistol use slow and difficult.

The 26 3/8 inch blade is in good condition but the etching is now gone or very feint at best, replaced by a steady patina. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard good but aged. The fishsksin grip and associated twisted grip wire bindings in very good condition. The leather and brass scabbard amazingly good for its age, some leather dry cracking but well above average. The sabre sheathes and draws well.

Tatham sword cutler to King George III. Superb deal, price just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number W74 (1192). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
