Sales enquiries

Marked to tailor / retailer "T Neary Hanover Street London W (West)" to the ricasso with original owner's initials "J G C" to the obverse, this is a very fine and high quality RE sword.

The typical Victorian deeply etched 32 3/4 inch slightly curved blade is a little worn in places, with patina of course, but the etching is still clear and impressive. Blade firm in the brass hilt, a little bent here and there but truly hardly noticeable, and to be expected (brass hilts are not that strong). The black fishskin grip is in very good condition, the twisted grip wire bindings are very good still. The chemically browned steel scabbard is in good condition overall. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A lovely sword with the potential to research the original owner. Please quote item reference number J76 (1146). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
