George 5th Kings Own Scottish Borderers Cross
Hilted Sword, Sold
A scarce WW1 era George 5th Kings Own Scottish Borderers Cross
Hilted Sword in overall good condition.
Made by William Anderson & Sons Ltd 4/6 George Street Edinburgh,
clearly etched to the Kings Own Scottish Borderers.
The 32 3/4 inch etched blade is in good condition but with wear
and patina spots. Blade firm in the hilt; some loss of plating especially
to pommel. The fishskin grip is good, some fading to a few patches,
the twisted grip wire bindings also good. The field leather scabbard
in sound though aged (some leather shrinkage, some loss of plating
to steel fittings). The sword sheathes and draws well.
A nice World War One era example for only £? (too late,
now sold). Please quote item reference number H92 (1009). Full sized
/ additional photos available upon request.
