A scarce British c.1780 Naval Officer's Sword and Scabbard
A good example of a short hanger type carried by English naval officers during the last quarter of the 18th Century. The hilt is brass, with a typical fluted shell guard and bone grip. The pommel is faceted and with a domed top. The blade is plain and single-fullered. Complete with original leather scabbard and brass frog loop. This is an interesting piece and the relative plainness of the sword might also indicate use by a lower rank.
Condition of the Sword
Hilt in excellent shape - blade with staining. The scabbard is missing its chape.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 25 inches (29 inches overall).
