1854 Pattern Webb & Bonnella British Infantry Officer's Swordimage 811 1

Sold Item Notice

In very good order, a fine 1854 pattern British infantry officer's sword made by quality cutler (Charles Jnr) Webb & (John) Bonella, sword manufacturers to His Majesty the Kong and His Royal Highness the Prince of Wales (1869-1887). So this sword was originally owned by a very social conscious and probably well connected officer.

32 Inch blade in very good condition, a little age wear and general patination but nothing much, firm in the hilt. The hilt in very good order retaining a good amount of gilt finish and with its black fishskin grip in very good order with the twisted grip wire bindings all present and correct. The steel scabbard is in exceptionally good condition for its age as well, and the sword sheathes particularly well with the very last 3mm having a satisfying click into hold position as it was when the sword was taken by its proud owner all those years ago.
