Rare and original English c.1750 Horseman's Broadsword
A virtually identical example can be found in Swords and Blades of the American Revolution by Neumann, page 150. Neumann states that this type of sword was know as an "Irish Hilt" as it was carried by English regiments in Ireland. Has a large cage hilt with leather wrap to the grip and a massive, double-edged, broadsword blade that is likely to be earlier, possibly 17th Century. It is faintly marked with stars and lettering within the fullers. The massive blade of this sword would have meant that it was devastating when used as a slashing and cutting weapon, particularly on horseback and at speed.
Condition of the Broadsword
Condition is excellent for its age - blade is very clean indeed.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 33 inches (39 inches overall). A terrific early English cavalry trooper's sword that was meant for heavy combat in the field.
