Title Police hanger with frog
Nationality British
Period c 1850
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

These swords were issued for riot duty and convict escort throughout Britain during the 19th century and even into the early 20th century. This good example has the bulk of its lead polish finish on the blade and was probably made by Parker Field of Holborn, Metropolitan Police armourers, although it is not marked as such.

There is some minor patination to the iron hilt and scabbard mounts, but generally it is in excellent shape. The fish skin grip and the leather scabbard are virtually pristine.

testimonials

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
