Sales enquiries

These are swords held by Royalist (King Charles 1st) infantry officers (enlisted / conscripted men typically carried other weapons). A hunting sword but with the Lings Head to the blade, so loved by Royalists. Actually, the Kings Head is the blade maker's mark; Wundes Johanness (the Younger) but, sshhh, don't tell the royalists!


The 18 1/4 inch blade is in good condition for its age, a steady patina, some inert light rust pitting towards the tip, some very old / period very small chips to the cutting edge, firm in the hilt. The single shell hilt aged but overall good, the stag horn grip is aged and worn but with no bits broken off.

Ready to dream about facing Cromwell's army in battle? You can more easily with this sword for £750. Please quote item reference R63. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0544-82x16x16 (0.876).
