An incredible example of a pre regulation slot hilt spadroon in the style of those early silver pieces made by Thurkle.
This piece would originally have been carried by an army or militia officer and it is of exceptional quality, the blade is a slender single edged piece atop a beautifully cut steel guard covered in almost Italian styled file work and an ivory grip surmounted with silver and copper wire.
The scabbard is potentially an addition but there is a possibility it is one of the rarer types of militia scabbards. This sword can be yours for £1100 or best offer.
Note on the ivory. This piece contains antique elephant ivory but it comes to less than 10% of the volume of the item, as of June 6th this sword must be registered for sale. I will no longer be shipping these to non-UK addresses.
