Sales enquiries

Etched at the ricasso (forte) to Silver & Co London, a sword cutler who used that trading name from 1845 to 1875.

The 32 3/8 inch blade is well etched, in good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard is also in good condition, though with a steady patina age and some wear / loss to the fishskin grip; the twisted grip wire bindings appear good. The once browned steel scabbard has some age / wear / rust / minor dents, but is overall good to very good. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

A good example of a volunteer artillery officer's sword, yours for only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AA53 (0051). Further / full sized images available upon request.
