Sales enquiries

Rare to find a blade etched with the Order of the Garter (blades are marked as a combined coat of arms within the belt and motto of the Order of the Garter). Shame there is no provenance to identify the original owner / officer.

The 32 inch blade is overall good, though with age. There is no maker's / retailer's details etched to the ricasso, but the brass proof slug has the letter "H" which indicates maker Hobson. Blade firm in the hilt / grip. The hilt / guard with tarnish / age and some small plate bubbles / rust spots. There is not scabbard but these do come to the market fairly regularly.

A rare item courtesy the Order of the Garter badge. Yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AC69 (0344). Further / full sized images available upon request.
