CRIMEAN WAR ERA BRITISH POLICE SWORD

$295.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 88-164

Constabulary officer's short swords were standard issue in the 19th Century for members of the British police and prison wardens. The lack of a locking catch dates this hanger to pre-1850.The 24-inch broad, curved blade has a flat spine above a long single fuller on both sides. The single-edged blade has an 8-inch unsharpened false upper edge. The blade is in very good condition. It is etched on the left side: "Parker Field & Sons 233 Holborn, London". Some staining and pitting near the point.  The brass guard has a “D” shaped knuckle bow with stepped oval pommel and a nice patina. The contoured wooden grip is missing shagreen covering. The sword is complete with its original leather scabbard with brass furniture. The leather of the scabbard is in good condition and the stitching is intact and strong but has shrunk about 1/2 inch. There is a stable glued repair near the top of the drag.

This is a good example of an early Victorian British constabulary short sword.   [pe] [ph:L]
