Victorian 1827 Pattern British Royal Navy Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

Marked at the ricasso to Joliffe (late Victorian outfitters) of Devonport, this is an impressive royal naval officer's sword in good condition.

The 30 inch slightly curved blade is in good condition, a little worn, the etching still mostly clear, and is firm in the hilt. The hilt in above average condition with some gilt remaining, the fishskin grip a little grubby but in good shape, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The leather and gilt fittings scabbard is a little aged but still sound; the scabbard locking pin and folding section of the guard still doing what they should. The sword knot is clearly a later addition.

Victorian naval swords are increasingly scarce and mostly in very poor condition, so this sword is worth the price. Further / full-sized pictures available upon request. Item reference number 822 (359).
