Sold Item Notice

This is an exceptionally good example of an increasingly scarce antique sword that just gets harder and harder to source, and with it rises ever higher in price; I think Scottish basket hilts are one of the best investments you can make at this time. Apart from a few rub / patina spots on the 32 1/4 inch claymore blade, the fading of the royal blue basket cloth edging, a single small moth hole to the crimson basket insert, the loss of some stitching to the side of the scabbard and some general aging / scuffing to the leather work, this is a very good sword indeed.

No maker / cutler / retailer marks to the blade, which means it was retailer sold and the original owner did not want to pay a little extra to advertise the outfitters he bought it from. Etched with Royal Coat of Arms and Edward VLL's royal cypher, plus thistles of course. Some marking / patina to areas of the blade, thankfully away from the main etching area. The blade is firm in the hilt and the hilt in superb order and bright. The fishskin grip in very good condition. Sheathes well. A great display item and lovely to hold. Worth every penny of £900. Full sized / additional photos available upon request. Please quote item reference number 796. Box 334-1m.
