Sales enquiries

Very nice example of a high quality Hobson made 1897P infantry officer's sword, Victorian, well etched with "Cumberland 1st R. V." (rifle volunteers) and original owner's initials "C. I. J." so the original owner's name and with that service history could be found with research.

Cumberland 1st Rifle Vounteers

Slightly longer than normal 33 inch blade is well etched with a little dark patina, but not much, and is firm in the hilt. Hilt a little aged but generally good and well preserved fishskin grip with ring bindings (twisted wire) in good shape. Lovely early leather scabbard with steel throat in good order; sword sheathes well. Further pictures available upon request.
