Title Iron-mounted constabulary hanger
Nationality British
Period c 1850
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is the classic police hanger issued for riot duty and convict escort in the mid-19th century. The iron variety is a little rarer, in my opinion, than the brass ones and this particular example has a magnificent blade with virtually all its factory polish. Most of these were made by Parker Field & Co, but this is unmarked.

Sadly, the scabbard has lost the stitching on the seam, but, this apart, the rest of the weapon is in an exceptionally good state for its age. The fishskin grip is perfect and the iron pommel shows some wear from use.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

testimonials

Sword arrived today. Fabulous. This is an excellent example of a fighting sword of its period, and a real gem. The 1828 Pattern is such a gorgeous sword, and this is a fine example. Even my bride is impressed and she doesn’t really get swords.
