Sales enquiries

A rare sword but with a bent blade (corresponds with period damage to scabbard). The bending should be fairly easy to straighten out but maybe that would detract from its history. Bought back from Argentina by a Victorian Royal Navy officer.





The 28 3/4 inch well etched blade is in very good condition except for said bend, firm in the hilt. The hilt in very good condition, as is the ivorine (synthetic ivory) grip. The scabbard has a break corresponding with the bend in the blade, plus some other perhaps related loss just above the break. Otherwise the scabbard is quite good. The sword sheathes and draws tightly.

A rare sword indeed. You can own this one for just £360. Please quote item reference T03. Further / full sized images upon request. Box 0722-1m (1.542).
