WW1 / George 5th British Royal Artillery Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

Yes, WW1 swords are fairly common, but not like this one; a Wilkinson high quality British artillery officer's sword in good condition, the blade exceptionally impressive.

The 34 1/2 inch blade is finely etched with Royal Artillery thunderbolts and badge. It has a small amount of rust spots, not enough to detract from the beauty of this piece. The blade is firm in the hilt and sheaths / draws well into / out of the leather field scabbard. The hilt has some age patina which could be cleaned but I do not think worth it. The fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings are in good shape. The leather scabbard repaired along a stretch of one seam and chape. A well above average sword in well above average condition. Further / full sized images upon request. Please quote reference number B08 (451).
