I cannot find the length of a sabre, it is a fairly standard length, the halls of parliament had to be so many of them wide, maybe called sword lengths as well.

Alas, there is no "Standard" Sabre length, particuarly during the period of the consturction of parliament.

Most period Sabres fell between 36-42 inches (91.5 to 107 cm) Modern sabres are measured in sizes, being available in size 0 (36.5 inch), size 2 (38.5 inch), and size 5 (41 inch.)
