Scarce and very beautiful British Royal Engineer Officer's Sword with much of the fine etching (including VR Royal Cypher for Queen Victoria) remaining, if a little worn through being polished many times. Unfortunately the maker name is no longer visible as the ricasso has been over-polished. Family Crest and Latin motto still partially visible; believed to be "Sermoni consona facta" ("Deeds agreeing with words") used by Collins, Devon and Trelawney families. 83.5 cm blade firm in gilt brass hilt, fishskin missing, grip bindings loose and one section missing. Spine has serial number of 97578. Further pictures available upon request.
