1854 P Mid-Victorian Grenadier Guards Named Officer's Sword (sold)

The blade in exceptionally good condition, a very good mid-Victorian Grenadier Guards officer's sword, named to C Duce.

1827 Pattern Mid-Victorian Rifle Regiment Named Officer's Swordimage 632 2

Sold Item Notice

The hilt is un plated steel, so it will clean up exceptionally well with a small amount of effort if required. The blade is both a true fighting blade and one of the best condition I have seen; the curve, etching style and tablet form etched original owner's name say this sword is mid-Victorian.

The stunning 33 inch blade looks almost new, superbly etched and is firm in the hilt. No maker's names and I think the original owner wanted that as his name has been tablet form etched onto it instead. The hilt is solid though a little patinated. The fishskin grip a little worn here and there but generally in very good order, the twisted grip wire bindings are very good too. The blade sheathes exceptionally well and holds in the scabbard. It is a "browned" scabbard; the brown being originally applied, not created subsequently by rust.

A truly lovely sword and perhaps the original owner can be traced by reference to Gazettes Online and Hart's Army Lists. I would be prepared to accept £500 for this superb sword. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. My item reference number 632 (255)
