Sales enquiries

Marked "H H Sheffield" to the ricasso for "H Hill" who was a sword cutler from 1912 to 1915, so this is an early WW1 sword, and a very distinctively solid one with bulbous guard and very strong blade.

The "dumb bell" shaped well etched 32 1/4 inch blade is firm in the hilt. The steel hilt is in very good condition. The leather grip is well worn, so it was held a lot. With unusual copper rather than the normal brass twisted grip wire bindings, which are in good order. The leather scabbard and sword knot are aged, but sound. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A nice example given the pronounced hilt and being Sheffield made. A very nice example of a WW1 sword. Please quote item reference number H43 (1028). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
