A C1750 Tortoiseshell Scabbarded Hanger £375


A rather fun little hanger, on the smaller size akin to a large knife rather than a small sword. These hangers were used as weapons of war, often they were used for hunting and highly decorated ones like this were worn as status symbols as part of a gentleman's attire. This piece is incredibly finely worked and still has its original scabbard which is rare among older hangers. Even better the hangar is rather fine tortoiseshell with brass fittings. There are some small chips to the tortoiseshell along the rear seam. This sword can be yours for £375 or best offer.


This is antique worked tortoiseshell so before enquiring I would suggest checking whether it is legal to import or own if you are outside of the UK.
