Edward 7th Scottish Argyll & Sutherland Basket Hilted Broadsword

Sales enquiries

A very good specimen of a scarce sword, this Argyll & Sutherland Basket Hilted Broadsword is over 100 years old yet and therefore in well above average condition. Marked to outfitters Fraser, Ross, & Co., Ltd of 72 Ingram Street Glasgow, the etching still crisp in most areas.

The 33 inch blade is in good condition, a little worn at the ricasso / forte but not too much. Blade firm in the hilt, the hilt generally very good though a little patinated. The fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings are good, the crimson basket lining in good order, the blue edging faded but pretty much complete. The crimson tassel good but starting to lose a few strands. The leather field service scabbard in overall good shape, the sword sheathes and draws well.

Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference F53 (911).
