Sold Item Notice

In as good condition as it generally gets, this 1821 pattern RN officer's pipe-back sword has the two scabbard fittings and upper frog stud that shows it to be a pre-1832 sword. Marked to the blade's ricasso "Ramsey Fore Street Devonport Warranted", there was a silversmith at 51 Fore Street in the 1830 Pigot & Co Directory of Devonshire.

The 29 inch blade is exceptionally well and finely etched, with very little patina and what there is generally is away from the etched areas. The blade is also firm in the hilt. The hilt retaining some of its gilt and the folding guard section in great working order. The fishskin grip a little off colour towards the guard but not too much; the twisted wire grip bindings are very good, one turn has a strand a little astray. The leather and gilt fittings scabbard is in excellent condition; if the leather is a replacement, it has been done exceptionally well to the point I believe it is original. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

Well above average and as such truly an investment. Further / large images available upon request. Our item reference number B94 (597).
