Sales enquiries

The Queen's Own Royal Rifles are one of the regiments which merged to become what is became the Royal Ulster Rifles and is now the Royal Irish Rangers. An interesting sword for many reasons, not least its early fullered blade, which is still very curved and with a clipped point, and with the Georgian / early Victorian tablet style etching. Marked to maker Moore & Co 14 St James's London, the trading style of which dates it from 1832 to 1838.

The 32 blade is in exceptionally good condition for its age, some scuffing not nothing much; the etching still very, very clear. Blade firm in the hilt; the hilt with very old style solid slung bugle cartouche, a little worn but very good. The fishskin grip still in very good shape and the twisted grip wire bindings in excellent condition. The steel scabbard with some age / light pitting, but still very good. The sword sheathes and draws very well. A superb sword. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number D21 (699).
