Complete with leather sword knot, field service scabbard, suspension frog, belt and straps, this is a high quality Fenton Brothers (makers to the War Office) British infantry officer's sword.

The 32 5/8 inch well etched blade is in good condition with some patina spots, but not too many, and is firm in the hilt. The steel hilt is in good order, very dark patina / tarnishing to the inside bowl. The fishskin grip and associated twisted grip wire bindings are also good. The leather scabbard has a replacement modified chape / drag, possibly period and is in good condition. The sword sheathes and draws well. The leather knot, belt, suspension frog and straps are all in good order. It is nice to get a complete set like this.

A great collector's and investor's piece. Please quote item reference number I54 (1068). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
