    Description

    CONFEDERATE MANUFACTURED CAVALRY SABER AND SCABBARD, PROBABLY A PRODUCT OF THE CONFEDERATE STATES ARMORY AT KENANSVILLE, NORTH CAROLINA.

    A very nice example of this scarce and desirable Confederate manufactured cavalry saber identified to maker.

    Condition:
    35.25" blade with rather crude unstopped fuller. Very nice smooth dark patina, just two tiny nicks. Distinctive heavy Kenansville guard and plain pommel cap with casting flaws and rather crude finish, also a very desirable dark untouched color. The grip is obviously an old replacement made in two halves and then glued together. Readily restorable by a skilled craftsman to its original form. Steel scabbard with crude soldered lap seam, deep dark patina with just some scattered light pitting. Brass ring mounts and brass throat. Steel carrying rings and drag. All brass with pleasing chocolate brown color.
