A fine example of a c.1750 Gilt-brass Smallsword
This is a high quality smallsword from the mid-18th Century and would have been carried by a gentleman of rank. It comprises a finely pierced hilt that has been lavishly decorated and retains just about all of the original fire-gilt. The blade is of rapier type and likely to be 17th Century in origin - this was quite common with smallswords of the period. It is deeply stamped to both sides with the word - VVLEVS - it probably translates as VULEUS.
Condition of the Smallsword
In excellent condition with light wear to the blade.
Specifications of the Smallsword
Blade length is 30.5 inches (37.5 inches overall).
