1895 Pattern Victorian Infantry Officer’s Swordimage 1895 Victorian Infantry Officers Sword 2

Sold Item Notice

Exceptionally good condition and very rare 1895 pattern infantry sword; it is the same as the still used 1897 pattern except the guard was not turned down and frayed uniforms quite easily (hence why the 1897 pattern with a turned down guard replaced it 2 years later). This sword is marked to outfitters WW White of Frances Street in Woolwich London but was probably made, by reference to the copper proof slug and surrounding etching, by Hobson & Sons of Lexington Street London. The owner's initials "IB" and various decorative etching including Victorian royal cypher are relatively clear. The nickel plating in a few small places on the blade and scabbard has bubbled as you would expect. The 80 cm blade is firm in the hilt, the fishskin complete and in good condition, the ring bindings complete and firm also, the scabbard in good condition except the wood liner is disintegrating. Further pictures available upon request. Item reference number 136
