Forged of Damascus steel, this splendid Mameluke presentation sabre was proudly carried by officers of the British Army during the early 19th century. The curved blade is richly decorated with intricate Turkish and oriental motifs, including a fire-gilded lion’s head on the hilt, while its gilt and embossed shagreen scabbard features two rings in order to hang from a belt. Mameluke swords take their name from Mamluk warriors of Ottoman Egypt. Today, modern Mameluke swords are worn by U.S. Marine officers, commemorating the Marines’ service during the First Barbary War, 1801-1805. To find such an extraordinary weapon in such excellent condition is truly rare. Great Britain, circa 1820 36” length
