    Napoleonic-Era Sabre

    This sabre’s hilt has a higher standard of decoration than that normally found and presents hand-engraved borders, dots, flowers and even cannons on the langets. Some gilding remains in the recesses. The ebony grip is lovely but shows the results of its age near the pommel. This hilt is retained on the tang but loose and would benefit from being tightened, although if the sword is purely for display then such restoration is unnecessary.

    The blade has a wide fuller and has been very nicely engraved with a variety of talismanic symbols filled with gold. The blade has sporadic patches of pitting to its final half.

    Over-18s only please, and postage to a UK address is free.

    £290
