In 1595, following a ukase (decree) of the Tsar thirty armourers were appointed to make firearms and edged weapons for the army and settled there with their families, forming the Crown Armourers’ quarter. On 15th February 1712 a decree was issued, setting out the construction of a new arms factory which had a considerable output due to the demands of the protracted Great Northern War with Sweden (1700-21). Following the Russian victory and decreased demands by the army the factories occupied themselves with the manufacture and decoration of hunting, luxury and personal weapons. In 1748 a dedicated workshop for sword manufacture, including those for dress, was established. The Tula armourers enjoyed the right, granted by the crown, to practise their trade in home workshops when they had completed the factory’s annual quota. Standards were set high and Tula work has since been prized for is technical accomplishment as well as its artistic merit as is evident on the present sword. See Mavrodin 1977, pp. 5-7.

Eaton when Envoy Extraordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to Spain (18361840) by Maria Christina of Spain (when Regent for her daughter, the future Isabella II); thence to his friend and physician Dr William B. Magruder; thence to his brother Colonel James A. Magruder, a personal friend of General Grant, who wore the sword on full dress occasions including the funeral of President Lincoln, thence by descent to Mrs. Millicent Magruder Nichols, Massachusetts who gifted the sword to Dumbarton House in 1967. John Henry Eaton (1790-1856), was born in Halifax near the town of Scotland Neck, North Carolina. He attended University North Carolina 1802-1804, where he studied law and was admitted to the bar commencing practice in Franklin. In 1808 or 1809 he moved to Franklin, in Williamson County, Tennessee, to take up residence on lands owned by his father. Here he met his future wife, Myra Lewis, who with her sister were the wards of General Andrew Jackson. Eaton’s marriage thus brought him further wealth and also an opening into a political career. In 1818 Eaton was appointed to the U.S. Senate to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of George W. Campbell; at the end of the term he was elected as a Democrat. Eaton served in the Senate from 1818-1829, when he resigned to become secretary of war in President Jackson’s cabinet remaining there until June 1831. In 1834 Jackson appointed him governor of the Territory of Florida, and in 1836 envoy extraordinary and minister plenipotentiary to Madrid. The latter appointment he held until 1840. ‡ £400-600

Militaria 334 A VICTORIAN OFFICER’S HELMET OF THE 1st KING’S DRAGOON GUARDS, ALMOST CERTAINLY THAT OF MAJOR WALTER CLOPTON WINGFIELD an 1847 Pattern ‘Albert’ helmet, with gilt-brass skull and fittings. To the front a QVC above an ornate cartouche, flanked with sprays of oak and laurel leaves, and mounted with a white metal star, bearing a gilt strap inscribed with the regimental title with VR cypher in the centre. Foliate decoration to the peaks. A “candlestick” plume socket with acanthus base, containing a black horsehair plume. Burnished gilt chin-chain lined with black velvet, with rose finials. Shaped internal headband of red leather, bearing initials (indistinct), with silk lining above. The skull with minor dents and some rubbing to the gilt; the bayleaf spray with one leaf defective; plume not original. The initials on the headband of this helmet, though difficult to decipher, appear to be those of Major Walter Clopton Wingfield, who served with the King’s Dragoon Guards from 1851 until 1861, and is credited with being the inventor of Lawn Tennis. When he was commissioned, his helmet, in common with those of all the Dragoon Guards and Heavy Dragoon regiments, would have been fitted with a black plume. Plumes of regimental colours were introduced in 1854, those of the King’s Dragoon Guards being scarlet. Wingfield was serving in the United Kingdom in the early 1850s and would clearly have replaced the black plume on his helmet by a scarlet one at that time. See Alexander 1986.

337 A VERY RARE GEORGIAN COLOUR OF NO. 15 COMPANY, 2ND BATTALION, THE COLDSTREAM GUARDS an 1814 Issue silk colour of No.15 Company, Coldstream Guards. A Union flag, 68 in. x 78 in., with painted decoration. The centre bearing St Edward’s Crown above the company symbol (Carolingian crown), ‘EGYPT’, the Sphinx between laurel sprays, ‘BARROSA’, a bugle-horn , ‘PENINSULA’ and ‘WATERLOO’. The horizontal arm of the cross inscribed ‘LINCELLES’ and ‘TALAVERA’. The numeral ‘XV’ in the canton. This colour was recently discovered in near-relic condition and has been expertly restored on a museum quality mount to display the obverse face. 172.5 cm x 194.5 cm, the colour On pages 155-6 of Major Dawnay’s definitive work on the Standards and Colours of the Household Division, it is stated that the three original battle-honours (Lincelles, Talavera and Barrosa) appeared on the 1814 issue of colours of the Coldstream Guards, and that the honours for Peninsula and Waterloo were subsequently added officially to the inferior arm of the cross in the only space available, i.e. beneath the buglehorn in the case of the Light Infantry Companies. The next two issues of colours (which were presumably of similar design) took place in 1821 and 1828. Fig. 93 shows the 1828 issue to No. 15 Company, in which the bugle-horn has reverted to its normal place below all of the battle-honours. The Coldstream Guards were represented only by the 2nd Battalion at Waterloo, and the only colours carried were those of the Colonel and of XIII Company. These survived the battle and were laid up in the Guards’ Chapel. Their remnants are illustrated on page 164 (Dawnay op. cit), having been destroyed by a German V1 bomb in 1944. £12000-18000

Provenance John Woodman Higgins Armory, Worcester, Massachusetts Inv. No. JWHA 2939.4

Provenance John Woodman Higgins Armory, Worcester, Massachusetts Inv. No. JWHA 2939.2

The title of this window is somewhat misleading. It probably refers to one of David’s warriors, Adino: ‘These be the names of the mighty men whom David had: The Tachmonite that sat in the seat, chief among the captains; the same was Adino the Eznite: he lift up his spear against eight hundred, whom he slew at one time.’ 2 Samuel 23:8-10.

It was armed with a 12 pounder pivot gun, four swivels, Minie rifles and double barrelled guns for the officers and muskets for the crew. The pistols are apparently not mentioned.

He also made descriptions of the geography and natural history of the territories they visited and gave a spirited attack on the slave trade and its causes . See Baikie 1854.

Introduction (a) The contractual relationship of Thomas Del Mar Ltd. and Sellers with prospective Buyers is governed by:(i) these Conditions of Business for Buyers; (ii) the Conditions of Business for Sellers displayed in the saleroom and available from Thomas Del Mar Ltd.; (iii) Thomas Del Mar Ltd.’s Authenticity Guarantee; (iv) any additional notices and terms printed in the sale catalogue, in each case as amended by any saleroom notice or auctioneer's announcement. (b) As auctioneer, Thomas Del Mar Ltd. acts as agent for the Seller. Occasionally, Thomas Del Mar Ltd. may own or have a financial interest in a lot.

2. Definitions “Bidder” is any person making, attempting or considering making a bid, including Buyers; “Buyer” is the person who makes the highest bid or offer accepted by the auctioneer, including a Buyer’s principal when bidding as agent; “Seller” is the person offering a lot for sale, including their agent, or executors; “TDM” means Thomas Del Mar Ltd., 25 Blythe Road, London, W14 0PD, company number 5368339. “Buyer’s Expenses” are any costs or expenses due to Thomas Del Mar Ltd. from the Buyer; “Buyer’s Premium” is the commission payable by the Buyer on the Hammer Price at the rates set out in the Guide for Prospective Buyers; “Hammer Price” is the highest bid for the Property accepted by the auctioneer at the auction or the post auction sale price; “Purchase Price” is the Hammer Price plus applicable Buyer’s Premium and Buyer’s Expenses; “Reserve Price” (where applicable) is the minimum Hammer Price at which the Seller has agreed to sell a lot. The Buyer’s Premium, Buyer’s Expenses and Hammer Price are subject to VAT, where applicable. 3. Examination of Lots (a) TDM’s knowledge of lots is partly dependent on information provided by the Seller and TDM is unable to exercise exhaustive due diligence on each lot. Each lot is available for examination before sale. Bidders are responsible for carrying out examinations and research before sale to satisfy themselves over the condition of lots and accuracy of descriptions. (b) All oral and/or written information provided to Bidders relating to lots, including descriptions in the catalogue, condition reports or elsewhere are statements of TDM’s opinion and not representations of fact. Estimates may not be relied on as a prediction of the selling price or value of the lot and may be revised from time to time at TDM’s absolute discretion. 4. Exclusions and limitations of liability to Buyers (a) TDM shall refund the Purchase Price to the Buyer in circumstances where it deems that the lot is a Counterfeit, subject to the terms of TDM’s Authenticity Guarantee. (b) Subject to Condition 4(a), neither TDM nor the Seller:(i) is liable for any errors or omissions in any oral or written information provided to Bidders by TDM, whether negligent or otherwise; (ii) gives any guarantee or warranty to Bidders and any implied warranties and conditions are excluded (save in so far as such obligations cannot be excluded by English law), other than the express warranties given by the Seller to the Buyer (for which the Seller is solely responsible) under the Conditions of Business for Sellers; (iii) accepts responsibility to Bidders for acts or omissions (whether negligent or otherwise) by TDM in connection with the conduct of auctions or for any matter relating to the sale of any lot. (c) Without prejudice to Condition 4(b), any claim against TDM

150

and/ or the Seller by a Bidder is limited to the Purchase Price for the relevant lot. Neither TDM nor the Seller shall be liable for any indirect or consequential losses. 5. Bidding at Auction (a) TDM has absolute discretion to refuse admission to the auction. Before sale, Bidders must complete a Registration Form and supply such information and references as TDM requires. Bidders are personally liable for their bid and are jointly and severally liable with their principal, if bidding as agent (in which case TDM’s prior and express consent must be obtained). (b) TDM advises Bidders to attend the auction, but TDM will endeavour to execute absentee written bids provided that they are, in TDM’s opinion, received in sufficient time and in legible form. (c) When available, written and telephone bidding is offered as a free service at the Bidder’s risk and subject to TDM’s other commitments; TDM is therefore not liable for failure to execute such bids. Telephone bidding may be recorded. 6. Import, Export and Copyright Restrictions TDM and the Seller make no representations or warranties as to whether any lot is subject to import, export or copyright restrictions. It is the Buyer's sole responsibility to obtain any copyright clearance or any necessary import, export or other licence required by law, including licenses required under the Convention on the International Trade in Endangered Species (CITES). 7.

Conduct of the Auction (a) The auctioneer has discretion to refuse bids, withdraw or reoffer lots for sale (including after the fall of the hammer) if (s)he believes that there may be an error or dispute, and may also take such other action as (s)he reasonably deems necessary. (b) The auctioneer will commence and advance the bidding in such increments as (s)he considers appropriate and is entitled to place bids on the Seller’s behalf up to the Reserve Price for the lot, where applicable. (c) Subject to Condition 7(a), the contract between the Buyer and the Seller is concluded on the striking of the auctioneer's hammer. (d) Any post-auction sale of lots shall incorporate these Conditions of Business. 8. Payment and Collection (a) Unless otherwise agreed in advance, payment of the Purchase Price is due in pounds sterling immediately after the auction (the "Payment Date"). (b) Title in a lot will not pass to the Buyer until TDM has received the Purchase Price in cleared funds. TDM will generally not release a lot to a Buyer before payment. Earlier release shall not affect passing of title or the Buyer's obligation to pay the Purchase Price, as above. (c) The refusal of any licence or permit required by law, as outlined in Condition 6, shall not affect the Buyer’s obligation to pay for the lot, as per Condition 8(a). (d) The Buyer must arrange collection of lots within 10 working days of the auction. Purchased lots are at the Buyer's risk from the earlier of (i) collection or (ii) 10 working days after the auction. Until risk passes, TDM will compensate the Buyer for any loss or damage to the lot up to a maximum of the Purchase Price actually paid by the Buyer. TDM’s assumption of risk is subject to the exclusions detailed in Condition 5(d) of the Conditions of Business for Sellers. (e) All packing and handling of lots is at the Buyer's risk. TDM will not be liable for any acts or omissions of third party packers or shippers. 9. Remedies for non-payment Without prejudice to any rights that the Seller may have, if the


TDM021 Listing.qxp_Layout 1 05/06/2018 16:15 Page 151

Buyer without prior agreement fails to make payment for the lot within 5 working days of the auction, TDM may in its sole discretion exercise 1 or more of the following remedies:(a) store the lot at its premises or elsewhere at the Buyer’s sole risk and expense; (b) cancel the sale of the lot; (c) set off any amounts owed to the Buyer by TDM against any amounts owed to TDM by the Buyer for the lot; (d) reject future bids from the Buyer; (e) charge interest at 4% per annum above HSBC Bank plc Base Rate from the Payment Date to the date that the Purchase Price is received in cleared funds; (f) re-sell the lot by auction or privately, with estimates and reserves at TDM’s discretion, in which case the Buyer will be liable for any shortfall between the original Purchase Price and the amount achieved on re-sale, including all costs incurred in such re-sale; (g) Exercise a lien over any Buyer’s Property in TDM’s possession, applying the sale proceeds to any amounts owed by the Buyer to TDM. TDM shall give the Buyer 14 days written notice before exercising such lien; (h) commence legal proceedings to recover the Purchase Price for the lot, plus interest and legal costs; (i) disclose the Buyer’s details to the Seller to enable the Seller to commence legal proceedings 10. Failure to collect purchases (a) If the Buyer pays the Purchase Price but does not collect the lot within 20 working days of the auction, the lot will be stored at the Buyer's expense and risk at TDM’s premises or in independent storage. (b) If a lot is paid for but uncollected within 6 months of the

auction, following 60 days written notice to the Buyer, TDM will re-sell the lot by auction or privately, with estimates and reserves at TDM’s discretion. The sale proceeds, less all TDM’s costs, will be forfeited unless collected by the Buyer within 2 years of the original auction. 11. Data Protection (a) TDM will use information supplied by Bidders or otherwise obtained lawfully by TDM for the provision of auction related services, client administration, marketing and as otherwise required by law. (b) By agreeing to these Conditions of Business, the Bidder agrees to the processing of their personal information and to the disclosure of such information to third parties world-wide for the purposes outlined in Condition 11(a) and to Sellers as per Condition 9(i). 12. Miscellaneous (a) All images of lots, catalogue descriptions and all other materials produced by TDM are the copyright of TDM. (b) These Conditions of Business are not assignable by any Buyer without TDM’s prior written consent, but are binding on Bidders' successors, assigns and representatives. (c) The materials listed in Condition 1(a) set out the entire agreement between the parties. (d) If any part of these Conditions of Business be held unenforceable, the remaining parts shall remain in full force and effect. (e) These Conditions of Business shall be interpreted in accordance with English Law, under the exclusive jurisdiction of the English Courts, in favour of TDM.

Thomas Del Mar Ltd.‘s Authenticity Guarantee If Thomas Del Mar Ltd. sells an item of Property which is later shown to be a “Counterfeit”, subject to the terms below Thomas Del Mar Ltd. will rescind the sale and refund the Buyer the total amount paid by the Buyer to Thomas Del Mar Ltd. for that Property, up to a maximum of the Purchase Price. The Guarantee lasts for one (1) year after the date of the relevant auction, is for the benefit of the Buyer only and is non-transferable. “Counterfeit” means an item of Property that in Thomas Del Mar Ltd.’s reasonable opinion is an imitation created with the intent to deceive over the authorship, origin, date, age, period, culture or source, where the correct description of such matters is not included in the catalogue description for the Property. Property shall not be considered Counterfeit solely because of any damage and/or restoration and/or modification work (including, but not limited to, recolouring, tooling or repatinating). Please note that this Guarantee does not apply if either:(i) the catalogue description was in accordance with the generally accepted opinions of scholars and experts at the date of the sale, or the catalogue description indicated that there was a conflict of such opinions; or reports produced by the Buyer, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. In the event Thomas Del Mar Ltd. decides to rescind the sale under this Guarantee, it may refund to the Buyer the reasonable costs of up to two mutually approved independent expert reports, provided always that the costs of such reports have been approved in advance and in writing by Thomas Del Mar Ltd. (ii) the only method of establishing at the date of the sale that the item was a Counterfeit would have been by means of

processes not then generally available or accepted, unreasonably expensive or impractical; or likely to have caused damage to or loss in value to the Property (in Thomas Del Mar Ltd.’s reasonable opinion); or (iii) there has been no material loss in value of the Property from its value had it accorded with its catalogue description. To claim under this Guarantee, the Buyer must:(i) notify Thomas Del Mar Ltd. in writing within one (1) month of receiving any informationthat causes the Buyer to question the authenticity or attribution of the Property, specifying the lot number, date of the auction at which it was purchased and the reasons why it is believed to be Counterfeit; and (ii) return the Property to Thomas Del Mar Ltd. in the same condition as at the date of sale and be able to transfer good title in the Property, free from any third party claims arising after the date of the sale. Thomas Del Mar Ltd. has discretion to waive any of the above requirements. Thomas Del Mar Ltd. may require the Buyer to obtain at the Buyer's cost the reports of two independent and recognised experts in the relevant field and acceptable to Thomas Del Mar Ltd. Thomas Del Mar Ltd. shall not be bound by any reports produced by the Buyer, and reserves the right to seek additional expert advice at its own expense. In the event Thomas Del Mar Ltd. decides to rescind the sale under this Guarantee, it may refund to the Buyer the reasonable costs of up to two mutually approved independent expert reports, provided always that the costs of such reports have been approved in advance and in writing by Thomas Del Mar Ltd.
