Sales enquiries

With the three fleurs-de-lis to the top right quadrant of the British Royal Coat of Arms on the blade, this sword was made before 1802.

The 32 inch blade is in good though aged condition, perhaps 30% blue and gilt etch remaining. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard in good condition. The original leather grip with some small patch losses, not much / many, and the associated twisted silver metal wire grip bindings are still good. There is no scabbard, but it may be worth buying a replica as the scabbards of these often fit the original swords (no guarantee given however).

Come on, a blue and gilt etched 1796 pattern British light cavalry officer's sword with rare pre-1802 Royal Coat of Arms for only £650? We must be crazy! Please quote item reference number K60. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1189-1m (1.623)
