English early 19th Century Small Sword, dated 1809

Sales enquiries

There is a clearly very old label attached to scabbard which someone will probably be able to read / decipher, the word / name "Johnson" and date "1809" appear.

The 29 1/2 inch colichemarde blade is in good order but the etching is now feint. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt overall very good without any losses or damage. The leather and metal fittings scabbard is aged; the metal chape is gone, the point therefore sits proud when full sheathed. The sword sheaths and draws well but is tight towards the end when sheathing.

A very good example and perhaps the label has some great story to tell. Our price is £450. Please quote item reference P16. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0201-1m (1.336).
