Georgian / Victorian British Royal Navy Officer's
Mameluke Sabre, sold
In fair / sound condition; an exceptionally rare Georgian / Victorian
British Royal Navy officer's mameluke.
An exceptionally rare and sought after pattern of British naval
sword, normally worn by senior (flag) officers and nobility.
25 Inch naval service length blade has rust patches / patina and
a few nicks to the forward cutting edge, firm in the hilt. The hilt
has lost most of its gilt, the ivory grip though is in good condition
save for a few marks and general ivory aging; the rosettes are all
there, which is a bonus.
OK, not in the best condition, but don't wait for the next one to
come along; it will almost certainly be a very long time before
another does and at a higher price. Our price is exceptionally good,
just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference
M50 (1267). Further / full sized images available upon request.
