SOLD ITEMS


This American malacca sword-cane dates ca.1780-1810, and bears all the attributes of the workmanship and materials identifying it to that time frame.
Overall length of the cane is 85 cm/33.5".
The knob is turned bone, drilled on the top to accept a cord or a loop, now long gone. The grip is half-bark malacca, grip ferrule is turned brass. Shaft is of much-prized full-bark teardrop malacca with a pronounced uniform ridge. The throat of the shaft is brass, with a coin silver band on the outside. The shoe is brass, with a series of scrolled lines at the top, and an iron tip. Blade was made specifically for a cane-sword, and not refashioned out of a small-sword blade, which is very significant, and adds value to this piece. Blade is 58 cm long, engraved with floral scrolls, blued and gilt. Blade has a well-done period repair, and the point remains sharp.
This is a wonderful early American sword, which by its appearance, and the materials used in its making, was quite expensive in its day. American-made canes of that time frame are quite scarce, and the sword-canes are much rarer still!
