posted by editor@armsandarmoruauctions.com at 2022-04-04 10:50:00


Bosley’s sale of April 20th   includes a good section of British martial guns as well as fine military swords and choice sporting and target cased arms.  The top lot in the sale is a rare 1815 Baker rifle converted for a socket bayonet.  Of related interest is the Baker 1813/27 rifles cavalry carbine that will also cross the block as will the rather awesome 1860 Jacobs double rifle by Swinburne. Among the edged weapons offered is a very rare WWII Lord Lovatt No 4 Commando dagger, one of only 6 known. Early swords in the sale include an 1847 presentation sword from the King of Hanover to the Duke of Beaufort.

Other lots in the sale include a Purdy cased pepperbox, a cased Adams war department marked revolver, a fine Napoleonic yeomanry officers’ sword by Deane of London, a 1788 pattern officers’ sword and a cased Lancaster percussion sporting rifle. Click on the image for a link to the sale.
