Georgian British (pre-1801) Army Officer's Blue & Gilt Etched Sword Stick

Sales enquiries

A very rare item which normally sell for up to twice what we are asking for this fine blue and gilt etched Georgian British army officer's sword stick with pre-1801 Royal Coat of Arms.

The 28 1/2 inch blade is marked on the spine to quality sword maker JJ Runkel of Solingen. The blue and gilt etching with Georgian "GR" royal cypher and pre-1801 Royal Coat of Arms is in very good condition for its age; it has been period sharpened, as you would expect for such a self-defence weapon. The blade is firm in the grip, the grip aged but good. The stick scabbard is very aged with some arts missing / cracking, as should be expected for such a light composite wood item of this age. However, we believe the scabbard can be fairly easily refurbished by a keen amateur handyman, without the need to go to a professional refurbisher.

In any event, this is a superb bargain for such a rare item with such good blue and gilt etch remaining. Our price is only £xxx (too late, now sold - original sales price divulged for small fee). Further / full sized images available upon request. Please quote item reference number D65 (774).
