Non Regulation Naval Fighting Sabre £325




An early example of a British naval fighting officers sword dating to somewhere between 1780 and 1805. These short sabres were considered the gentlemanly variant of the cutlass or hanger by naval officers in the period from the tail end of the French Revolution to the Napoelonic Wars. This sabre has an evenly curved blade with arabesque floral engravings. I have respectfully cleaned one side of the blade more than the other half, leaving that upto the new owner. The brass hilt with many sections of acorn decoration, acorns being a naval motif of thge period is in good condition. Sadly there is a small loss to the grip. This sabre is a nice relic of the high seas during the time of Nelson or if you chose it can be a light restoration project.


This sword can be yours for £325
