Wonderful Civil War Confederate Artillery Sword with "CS" & Original Scabbard
Click on an image to enlarge
This is one of my favorite patterns of Confederate swords from the Civil War. It is the short bladed artillery saber made for the Confederate artillerymen. They get their design after the Roman style gladiator sword. This pattern is a fierce looking weapon but their massive design proved unwieldy in battle so they stopped making them after the Civil War started. This is why we don't' see many of the originals, like this one, offered for sale. This one has a great look with a very pleasing appearance. The cast brass handle has the bold "CS" letters on each side of the handle as well as the star design on the end of the grip. You can see the casting grain where the brass was cast in a mold made of sand. You can see the imperfections in the casting for the manufacturer realized the importance of getting the piece into the field outweighed the desire for making it perfect. These flaws are one of the traits you look for to tell the original swords from the reproductions. The blade is 19-1/2 inches in length and the sword measures 24-1/4 inches overall. The blade has the wide single fuller on each side. As you can see, the blade is crude and beautiful. What makes this piece really stand out is that it is accompanied by the original scabbard. These scabbards are made of brass and leather which is why they seldom survive over the years. This one has the leather but the brass pieces have been lost to the ages. This is a fantastic piece of Confederate Civil War artillery history. This piece of history came from the museum like personal collection of Mathew Woodburn.
