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.
