~ Early To Mid 19th Century Bird Head Sword Cane, Blued Blade ~
Here we have a really rather elegant sword cane with a grip in the form of a downward looking polished birds head, made from horn.
The cane itself is a nice British Victorian style bamboo with a brass and steel end cap.
The blade is a flattened hexagonal section blade with a blued foliate design marking this as being an earlier piece since blueing of blades went out of fashion in the latter half of the 19th century.
~ Dimensions ~
The cane is 35 inches (89 cm) long.
The blade is 25 inches (64 cm) long.
The cane weighs 380g.
~ Condition ~
The cane is in excellent condition for the age with a beautifully polished grip and shaft.
The sword has some loss to the blueing.
One of the birds head glass eyes are missing.
~ Postage ~
UK postage is £20, international at cost and it can be viewed in our shop.
