A hero cavalry sabre used in the production of Burr Steers’ surreal horror-comedy Pride and Prejudice and Zombies.
Raised in a 19th century England beset by a foul plague turning the living into the undead, Elizabeth Bennet (Lily James) and her kung fu-trained sisters deal with the trials and tribulations of English high society and the zombie apocalypse.
This hero sword was used by Colonel Darcy (Sam Riley) as he undertook has duties as a member of the British militia. The sword and sheath are made of metal with a curved steel blade, which has been blunted for stage use, and a wire-bound leather grip. An elaborate curved guard wraps around the grip, with detailing fanning around across the hand to protect the fist in use. Two metal rings hang from the sheath to allow it to be worn on a sword belt.
Well-used on the production, the sword and sheath show some signs of minor corrosion, however the weapon remains in otherwise excellent condition.
Materials: Ferrous Metals, Artificial Leather.
