1897 Pattern George 5th Infantry Officer's Dress Sword

Sales enquiries

A superb display item; the sword hilt and scabbard absolutely sparkle on this World War 1 era 1897 pattern British infantry officer's dress sword. The 32 1/2 inch etched blade has some patina but the plated scabbard is virtually flawless (a wear area around one suspension ring one side and a thin wear line around the lower section), as is the hilt. The fishskin grip and ring bindings (twisted grip wire) are in very good order. The grip has a little play against the backpiece / things are a little loose but not much and as sheathed swords go, this is certainly a stunner. Further / full sized images available upon request. My item reference number is 461 (13).
