World War One British Infantry Officer's Wilkinson Sword

Sales enquiries

It may well be possible to trace the original owner (despite the fact the Wilkinson sales ledger has a gap covering when this sword was made) as their initials "H. G. P. A.) are on the all weather bag and it is almost certain he survived the war as the blade has been period replated, most likely by Wilkinson (due to quality), therefore indicating it was being carried for some time after it was made.

32 Inch blade in good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt with some age, but very little. The grip also in good condition. The leather knot and field service scabbard in good shape; the sword sheathes / draws well. The roeskin bag liner is aged and the top stitching has come astray, but is sound. The leather all weather bag in good though aged condition.

It is nice to get a good clean example like this with the bags on top, plus a chance to research the original owner officer. A low £xxx and it is yours (too late, now sold, but we can divulge the original sales price for a small fee)! Please quote item reference number AA49 (0040). Further / full sized images upon request.
