SOLD – British 1845 Artillery Sabre

No one quite knows what these swords were used for, but many are marked to the Royal artillery, even though they come in a much smaller format, possibly for a unit serving in tighter quarters than your typical artilleryman.

This specific sabre has no visible markings, is very tight and in good shape overall. The hilt and scabbard are patinated thoroughly. The hilt is slightly crooked in relation to the blade, This could be fixed, but the hilt is still very tight with no movement whatsoever. The blade has been service sharpened many times.
