A good example of a 1848 Pattern Royal Navy cutlass with a blade marked on the ricasso ’16’ beneath the crown.
There are no other visible marks and stamps on the piece.
~ Dimensions ~
The blade length is 72 cm and the overall length of the cutlass is 84 cm.
Its width is 16 cm and it weighs 1.5 kg.
~ Condition ~
The blade has quite a number of small nicks but it remains clean overall.
The painting on the basket and grip is chipped, as expected for its age.
The price of £520 includes shipping to New Zealand
