 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is a device for the suspension of a spadroon or smallsword from the owner's hip. They were worn in Britain, Europe and America from approximately 1770-1820. This particular example is fairly plain with some irregularities in the hanging chain work, suggesting contemporary modification. They are quite rare.

testimonials

My order arrived this morning, thanks for the prompt delivery.

Two excellent original pieces, I must say.

Buckle is in minty condition retaining so much detail esp plummage on eagle's neck and chest, like to see those 'creases' on the legs also... a beautiful example of an early O&C buckle.

Belt is very interesting, rather thin, CROUPON stamped and also behind the tongue...maybe Allegmeine but no SS markings as you state. Beautiful piece none the less.

Thanks for a speedy transaction Chris, I am very happy with my purchase :)

The package arrived today, and the two items are nice. The Mother Cross actually looks a lot better in person than in the pics.
