Confederate Wood Scabbard Cavalry Saber

Our Price: sold

Confederate Wood Scabbard Cavalry Saber. This is a nice example of the classic wood scabbard saber that is thought to have been made by either Marshall of Atlanta, GA or Kraft, Goldschmidt and Kraft of Columbia, SC.

Often these swords are in poor condition, especially the scabbard, since they broke so easily. This scabbard is sound, still retaining much of its original finish on mounts and body. The original throat, which is often, is also retained here. The scabbard body is also tight and unopenened. Grip retains its original iron wire on painted wood that almost appears to have never had a leather wrap. 35 inch blade with unstopped fuller, typical of this pattern.

Blade is grey with scattered areas of staining and pitting wth a few small nicks in cutting edge. Protective washer is missing. Iron wire single strand wire is tightly wrapped around carved wood grip with no remnants of cloth or leather. Brass ferrule and hilt are a little loose due to the loss of washer. Hilt and pommel exhibit good brass patina, as does scabbard, ring mounts and drag. Scabbard body is sound and solid with numerous small scratches, stains, dents and abrasions. Sheet  Metal mounts retain much of their original black paint, still partially covering brass ring, mounts and brass drag. Thin coating of varnish or shellac covers much of the scabbard body and mounts, which appears to be  original manufacture
