British C.1790 Military Naval Short Hanger Sword

british-1790-hanger-sword-2

A fine example of an original British C.1790 Military Naval Short Hanger Sword.  This sword comprises a very well ribbed horn grip and brass stirrup hilt with a prominent tang button.  The blade is extremely curved and plain.  No markings to the sword that I can see but it is good quality manufacture and was probably made for use by a junior officer or NCO.

Sword used whilst on board a ship

The brass hilt and relatively short blade makes me wonder if this has a naval origin as it would have made a pretty effective close combat edged weapon whilst on board a ship.  Condition of the sword is excellent with a pleasing patina to the hilt and blade.  Both blade and hilt are rock solid with no movement.  Blade length is 23 inches (28 inches overall).  A tidy little piece.
