Sales enquiries

A pre 1884 Dutch naval officer's sword. We seen a 1843M guard alone being sold as a spare part for €120 elsewhere, such is this sword's scarcity.



The 27 inch blade with feint etching is in very good condition, the tip rounded (we are certain this was to make it safe when the officer retired, rather than damage per say) and a little movement in the hilt. The hilt in very good shape with plenty of gilt remaining. The ivory grip very good but for a chip missing under the pommel. The scabbard good, the leather a little aged and the fittings a little loose, but very good age. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A superb looking sword from when the Dutch were a naval force to be reckoned with. Well worth our price tag of £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference R74 (0565). Further / full sized images available upon request.
