Georgian / Victorian Pipeback British Royal Naval Officer's Swordimage A07 1

Sold Item Notice

The scabbard's top locket marked to "Selby Portsmouth", dates this sword from 1830 to 1862. The scabbard lockets are all original, I had the perished leather replaced (you can age or shine it to your own preference). These swords are so rare, and it is even rarer to find one in such good overall condition, the etching still visible on the blade.

The 29 inch pipe-backed blade with quill point tip is in very good order, showing some etching including the maker Selby's name, and firm in the hilt. The hilt retains a little gilt and is in very good order. The fishskin grip a little grubby but sound, as are the grip wire bindings. The folding guard is good. The new leather for the scabbard means this is currently a little tight, but has been well done.

A great example of an iconic sword from then the world's greatest naval power. A solid investment. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. The item reference number is A07 (424).
