Here we have a delightful pre-regulation Georgian spadroon bearing the mark of George III, this early Napoleonic piece has been placed with an associated and well fitting 1790's scabbard by a previous owner. The 1780's style spadroon is one of the last true pre regulation swords that came about in the Georgian era, it have the officer everything they needed. An iron guard, a knucklebow and a straught cut and thrust blade. These style of spadroons were used across Europe until the regulation revolution started in the 1790's.
This example was made in Solingen and has deep flowing engravings. The grip is a reeded ebony and the guard is iron with some minor salt and pepper ageing. The blade has some staining but is solid. The scabbard appears to be from a 1796 but came with this sword so can be sold with it, the blade fits tightly. This sword can be yours for £450 or best offer.
