Mid 19th Century French Preval Sword £575




One of the rare Préval sabres inspired by Colonel Claude Antoine Préval, these swords were created to be a viable alternative to the standard cavalry sword at the time and almost predicted what the future of the cavalry sword would be in Europe as later on the trend would be to create a sword which could function as both a sword and lance in combat. Being stiff enough to give point and also sturdy enough to be used in a prolonged cavalry duel. This example has a four-bar guard and a well-marked triform blade. This sword can be yours for £575 or best offer.
