 (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.

It got here this morning, presumably delayed by the holidays. It is perfect, indeed better than I was expecting.

Found the item a little on the expensive side and a bit disappointed that you were unwilling to bend a bit on the price of the Officer's Tunic Eagle (half the fun of buying, after all, is the haggling), but impressed by the speed of delivery and the quality of the item. Was well worth it in the long run...
