1845 Pattern British Infantry Officer's Sword,
Wilkinson / Jones, sold
In good condition, an 1845 pattern British infantry officer's
sword etched to army retailer Jones of Regent Street London, who
sold sword made by Wilkinson.
A good honest 1845P, the etching somewhat worn but still clear
The 32 inch blade is firm in the hilt. The brass hilt has lost
its once bright gilt finish, but is still in good condition besides,
some slight damage as you should expect, the folding guard works
well enough. The fishskin grip in good condition, the associated
twisted grip wire bindings a little wayward in places, not too much.
The once chemically browned (some browning remaining) field service
steel scabbard has some light period damage but is overall very
good. The sword sheathes and draws well.
A very good example. Please quote item reference I68 (1071). Further
