    ~ British Naval Three Ball 1796 Style Sword ~


    Something extremely interesting and not often seen is the three ball guard. This sword is about as non standard as they come with all the elements about it screaming naval but the swords style appearing to be something more commonly seen among the army.

    The white shagreen grip, the blued steel guard (now worn to a nice finish) and the ball guard are all very common on swords carried by British and East India Company officers in the 1750’s to the 1790’s. With this sword obviously inspired by the British 1796 Light Cavalry I would date it to between 1796 and 1805 when the Navy got their latest pattern of sword.

    This is a wonderful and unique piece with so many interesting elements that would benefit any collection.

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword is in excellent condition for its age and has had one langet removed.

    ~ Postage ~

    Postage will be £15 to any UK address....Read full description
