    ~ C1790 Mounted Naval Sword Of William Anderson, Battle of Copenhagen Veteran ~


    Here we have a brilliant artefact of a truly historic event. The sword of a young officer present at the Battle of Copenhagen and a ball of shot that came from his body.

    The sword itself is a pre-regulation spadroon style hilted curved hanger blade with the remains of its gilt inlay seen on the blade. The guard is made of gilt brass, the blade is a heavily patinated steel with traces of gilt, the scabbard is leather and gilt brass. The plaque has separate hooks for the sword and scabbard and the bullet or shot has been attached over some blue felt.

    The sword was carried by Midshipman William Anderson as his combat blade, he was aboard the Bellona, a ship that ran aground during the battle and was a static target, firing and also being fired upon.

    This is an incredible and poignant relic of one of the hardest fought and closely run naval battles in British history.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The plaque is 36 inches (92 cm) by 8 inches (20 cm).

    The set weighs 2.7 Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword is in good condition for its age with a patinated blade and a scabbard in good condition, it has been mounted professionally by the former owners.

    ~ Postage ~

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