    ~ 1796 Infantry Officers Blue & Gilt Spadroon and Scabbard ~


    Here we have a blue & gilt officers Spadroon, a common form of sword from the late 18th and early 19th centuries used prominently during the Napoleonic wars by armies on both sides of the conflict but most recognizably the British (and their German allies) and by the French.

    Our example is a combat sword which most probably has seen quite a bit of action. This piece is essentially a backsword with a less protective guard with a cut and thrust blade.

    The lower half of the blade is blued and gilt foliage and arms drums and banners decorated.

    The grips still preserves its quilion and folding guard flap along with its original steel wire grip and elaborate pommel.

    The sword comes with its original black leather scabbard, which it is quite a rare thing.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The sword is 39 ¼ inches (100 cm) long.

    The blade is 33 inches (84 cm) long.

    The scabbard is 33 ¾ inches (86 cm) long.

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword has aged significantly.

    The blade developed some serious amount of pitting on its middle section and it is slightly bend.

    The blue & gild section remains fine though as it is the grip.

    The scabbard is word, as seen in the pictures.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £25 or it can be inspected in our shop.
