VGC British WW1 Era Royal Naval Lieutenant's Sword

Sales enquiries

I believe this to be a late WW1 sword, for a British naval lieutenant. Made by Batson of London, the sword is exceptionally well made and attractive. These black fishskin grip swords are much rarer than more senior officer's swords, and this one is in very good condition indeed, well above average

The 31 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition, nicely etched with fouled anchor one side and British Royal Coat of Arms the other. Blade firm in the hilt, the folding guard working fine and locating onto the scabbard locking pin. The hilt retaining gilt. The fishskin grip exceptionally attractive and in very good order with twisted grip wire bindings intact. The leather scabbard a little aged in places but in good general order. A very fine example. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Item reference number 812 (372).
