Sales enquiries

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).
