Quite Rare Confederate Naval Cutlass with South Carolina Retailer Mark
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a great Confederate piece! This is the Confederate naval cutlass sold by the famous Courtney & Tennent of Charleston, South Carolina. At the base of the full-length 18-1/2 inch blade it has the rectangular retailer's stamp from them as well as the Charleston, South Carolina location. On the top of the blade it has the actual maker's mark of "MOLE". Robert Mole made these for Courtney & Tennent. He was located in Birmingham, England. There is an interesting story associated with these swords and I borrow the story form the button book by Warren Tice. He states that during the Civil War, Tennent moved to England where he sold Confederate cotton bonds and acted as a middle man between the Confederate military and the British Manufacturers which contributed toward making Britain an economic ally of the Confederacy. One of the pieces he ran through the blockade was these swords. This one has a gorgeous look all over. It has a beautiful thick patina all over. The blade is double edged with the single fuller on each side. The guard is made of brass with a thick patination all over. The hand guard is in excellent shape all over as you can see. In the book on Confederate imported pieces entitled , The English Connection, they state that this version is "... quite rare and must have been obtained in very limited numbers." On the handle of the sword it has the correct "Enfield" style pressed leather grip intact and as you can see it has a beautiful look all over. This one is missing the original leather and brass scabbard as they so often are. This one is just absolutely untouched and correct in all aspects. You can own this beauty today for $3,250.
