militaria item Prison Service officer's sword by WKC
- German
This is a marked (WKC) Weyersberg & Kirschbaum production from Solingen, which unusually has a solid bronze hilt, rare for the era, as most of these swords had aluminium hilts (gilt for the prison service and a silver finish for the justice administration officials). In 50 years of trading this is the first bronze hilt I have seen.

militaria item Enfield cutlass bayonet, model 1859, 2nd pattern
- British (German make - American contract)
This was introduced in 1859 for the Royal Navy to supply a need for a cutlass and a bayonet in one weapon for the naval rifle of the era, a .577 Enfield cap and ball weapon. This is an A & E Holler example - ie a Solingen blade. There are no UK ordnance marks, so this is almost certainly an American export item.

militaria item Silver-hilted smallsword
- Dutch
This early smallsword has an Italian blade, made probably at Belluno in the state of Venice in the late 16th century by Andria Ferara, undoubtedly the town's most famous blade smith. Belluno was the premier blade-making town in the Veneto and exported blades far and wide. Today it is located in the Alto Adige region, in the foothills of the Alps.

militaria item US dragoon officer's sword, 1831 model
- American
This is one of the rarest of the post-1812 War cavalry swords. The Federal army was microscopic at this time, perhaps only 30,000 strong, the numbers only gearing up for the Mexican War of 1848. The design is a direct copy of the British light cavalry sabre of the same era.

militaria item Light Cavalry officer's sword, 1788 pattern variant
- British
This iron-mounted sabre, dating from the early years of the Napoleonic Wars, would have been carried by a British officer in a cavalry or yeomanry unit. Singularly, it has a backstrap/pommel in the form of a lion's head, something I have never seen on this pattern in over 50 years of arms dealing. All I need is a good portrait to pin it down!
