Title Matthew Boulton small sword and chatelaine
Nationality British
Period c 1790
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This fine cut steel small sword is a classic Boulton production from the Soho works in Birmingham. This type of sword would have been worn at court right through the Regency period at the end of George III's reign. The blue and gold blade retains 80%+ of its original finish and its original chatelaine.

The scabbard is white snakeskin and is in excellent shape. I have now polished the scabbard mounts and removed the light covering of dried grease on the top and bottom chape. It has its original chain guard with one small section of the dangles missing. Otherwise the whole weapon is in excellent shape. The blade is almost certainly German. The hilt has 90%+ of its original lead polish finish.

Bayonet arrived safe + sound this AM Sat. Special delivery excellent again. Worth the few extra bob. To be honest it was better than I dared hope. I usually avoid polished bits like the plague!! Your price was a bit fierce!! - but a great marking I lacked... Please email me anytime you have anything that might be of interest.

I received the silver Verdienstkreuz this morning. Your swiftness and dedication was very much appreciated and, though the envelope arrived with a Post Office sticker saying it had been found open or damaged, the cross was unharmed and looks beautiful. Thanks for your time.
