Sales enquiries

An interesting Victorian British Royal Naval officer's sword because of a period label attached to the washer / buffer; this sword was once used as a ceremonial sword at one or more Royal Navy Officer's weddings. I have included a photo of the label below if anyone wants to try and work it out, what it once said in full.

The 31 inch slightly curved blade has got patches of patina for sure, but when sheathed in its scabbard this is quite a good display piece with much gilt remaining to the hilt, the leather of the scabbard in good order, the fishskin grip and ring bindings (twisted grip wire) in good condition, the sword knot clean for its age and the folding guard complete and working fine.

Further / full sized photos available upon request. My item reference number is 474.
