In Fair Condition
|Period:||19th - late|
On offer is a particularly rare example of a completely bespoke antique English marine cutlass, most likely Victorian (circa late 19th Century).
Beautiful curved steel blade with a good patina.
Large brass hilt, stepped pommel and black leather grip without wire banding.
The only markings are the numbers 594 stamped onto the quillon. This makes it hard to fully identify the sword, however we believe this to be a merchant navy officer’s sword used to defend against pirates due to its simple form.
In fair condition. A solid & strong piece with an excellent patina. The blade heavily stained. Handle leather is worn but still complete. Blade edge is not sharp and has a few very small nicks, the tip bumped.
Measurements - Total length 70cm (27.5”), the blade length 56cm (22”). Total weight 750g.
