Sales enquiries

Supremely etched blade marked to Gieve, Matthews and Seagrove (quality sword cutlers that retailed Wilkinson sword products under their own name), a George 5th RN officer's sword in well above average condition.

The 31 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition, a small section of patina towards the point away from the etching. The blade is firm in the hilt, the hilt with some gilt remaining, the fishskin grip in very good order as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The leather scabbard is aged and a little dulled, but sound. The sword sheathes and draws well, the locking mechanism on the fold down section of the hilt works well and locates perfectly onto the retaining pin of the top scabbard fitment. A well above average example and well worth £500. Further / full-sized pictures available upon request. Item reference number 883 (384).
