Confederate Navy Cutlass Built by Mole

28 Mar

Courtney and Tennant, Charleston SC. marked Confederate navy cutlass. This piece was built by Robert Mole in England and acquired for the Confederacy by George Tennant who was the agent for the Confederate Navy. This piece shows an 18.75″ excellent blade. There is one area of fine pitting on both sides of the blade and some staining. The original washer is in place. Mole is correctly stamped as is the Courtney and Tennant marking. The black checkered grips are original and rate very good to excellent. The black leather scabbard is complete and rates excellent with only some age and surface crazing. The seams are solid with unpolished brass fittings. The uppermost 2.5″ of the scabbard is in perfect condition, as it was protected by the frog. This piece is overall 24″ and is one of the scarcer cutlasses as fitted with the full iron guard. This piece is in its as found condition, it has not been cleaned or polished. An excellent example for the serious Confederate naval collector. RR Auction COA.
