Courtney and Tennant Cutlass

An extremely fine “Courtney & Tennent Charleston S.C.” cutlass made in England by Robert Mole, and so stamped on the edge of the ricasso. The cutlass has a brass hilt with pressed leather grips. The blade is double edged, wasp waisted with a single fuller down the center of the blade. One of the surprising things about this cutlass is how well-balanced it is. There is no scabbard. This appears to be an absolutely original example of this rare sword. Dimensions: 24.5 inches long overall, with the blade being 19.5 inches long and 1.75 inches wide. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $55.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

 

Condition:

Very good overall condition. The outer branch of the guard is very slightly bent. The blade looks as if it had some light surface rust that was cleaned with a wire brush. The stamps are sharp and clear. A few small stains remain on the blade. Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
