Sales enquiries

Reportedly a British capture / pick up from the Battle of Balaclava (charge of heavy and light brigades) on the 25th October 1854. This 1833 dated 1827M is a rare sword indeed in any event. And of course, we guarantee it is 100% authentic.

The 34 1/4 inch blade is overall sound but has some deep rust patches, thankfully not many, and some ominous period nicks to the cutting edge. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt overall good. The original leather covered grip has lost some of its leather. The heavy iron scabbard is painted (believed period) and with pitting but sound. The sabre sheathes and draws well.

A very rare and evocative sword. An investment at £1750. Please quote item reference Q34. Further / full sized photos available upon request. Box 0350-1.18 (3.942).
