George 5th Era British Naval Officer's Sword with Knot and All Weather Bag

Sales enquiries

A very nice example, Edward 7th / George 5th era, British naval officer's sword by Gieves Ltd. of London, Portsmouth and Devonport, named on the folding guard to the original owner / officer R. M. Levett. I have not researched this officer so there lies a golden opportunity for someone.

The 31.5 inch blade in very good order, a tiny amount of patina, the etching a little worn (slightly more one side than the other), etched with fouled anchor, etc., firm in the hilt and sheathes into the scabbard well (folding guard / locking pin works well). The fishskin grip in very good order with the twisted wire ring bindings intact. Much gilt remaining to the hilt. The sword knot in very good order. The roe skin lined black all weather bag in good condition for age. A well above average example.

Further / large images available upon request. My item reference number 572 (boxTBA).
