In addition to Courtney Tennant cavalry sabers, Mole also produced naval cutlasses for the Confederacy. George Tennant wasthe primary procurer for the Confederate State Navyfromheavy cannon to the porcelain cookwareused on theship.
The cutlass blade, is 20” long, double-edged, 1¾” wide at the grip and has a single, tapering fuller on each flat. The sword is completely tight and displays perfect age with wonderful patination on the brass grip.
A rare addition to any Confederate collection.
