WW1 British General Officer's Mameluke Sword,
In very good condition, a stunning WW1 British Army Officer's
Mameluke Sword & 2 Scabbards, made by Robert Mole.
This is such a rare sword, and in exceptionally good condition.
A General officer's mameluke with pronounced curve, which may well
be a special order. With both steel (field officer) and leather
field service scabbards; the later with wear, so it was worn most
likely by a Brigadier (highest general field officer rank) or possibly
The 29 7/8 inch curved blade is supremely well grey etched. The
blade in near new condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt retaining
most if not all gilt. The faux ivory grips are in very good condition
with all gilt rosettes present. The steel scabbard in exceptionally
good condition; it would surely be as new with some TLC and a good
metal polish. The leather field scabbard and sword knot in good
condition. The sword sheathes and draws well.
You really do not see many of these, especially not in this condition.
Absolutely, 100% worth £? (too late, now sold). Please quote
