    ~ Circa 1820 Polish Mameluke Sword With Ottoman Style Scabbard ~


    The sword came from a site in Warsaw and is made in the traditional Ottoman style, adopted by the Polish army.

    The western armies adopted the mameluke sword with some modifications regarding the size and shape of the blade, grip and scabbard. The Polish army preferred the highly curved wider blade with a larger pommel.

    Also they preserved the Ottoman/Syrian scabbard of leather and metal, decorated with a metal spine and spherical shaped carrying suspension rings bands.

    This is the case with this sword. The grips are made of horn and decorated with oval silver escutcheon plates. The steel cross guard is typical for this type of sword.

    The fine watered blade’s decorations represent astronomical signs.

    The scabbard is made of wood covered with black leather reinforced with a metal spine and a steel locket and chape.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade length is 29 inches (73.5 cm) and the overall length of the sword is 34 inches (86.5 cm).

    The blade is its scabbard length is 35 inches (89 cm).

    It weighs 1.3 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The blade is in great condition for its age, free of rust or any other damage. The decorations are worn. The edge is free from nicks.

    The grip and cross guard are also excellent showing the expected darkening of their metal parts.

    The scabbard is in fair shape. The leather parts have aged and the lower part of the metal spine is missing. This partially affected the position of the lower leather cover pushing it 5-8 millimetres down towards the chape.

    Both the locket and the chape have darkened but remained undamaged.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £22 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard....Read full description
