Sales enquiries

A lovely example of a rifle volunteer officer's sword, well etched with "4th Glamorganshire Volunteer Rifles" and original owner's initials "W H B" etched to the blade; almost certainly therefore, the name of the original owner can be researched with due diligence.

The 32 3/8 inch blade is in good condition, some spotting away from the etching, some finger print stains (means they are very old) which could be removed, but otherwise in really good condition for its age. Blade firm in the hilt. The steel hilt with some former rust pitting but generally good and sound. The fishskin grip and associated twisted grip wire bindings are a little worn with a couple of small worm holes (no extra charge for the worms) but overall good. The steel scabbard a little aged but good and sound, the sword sheathes and draws well.

A great example with tons of research potential, yours for only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number I23 (1053). Further / full sized images available upon request.
