Sales enquiries

Possibly could be restored to parade ground condition by replating the blade at least. We have not paid the £10 to research the Wilkinson ledger to see if the original owner information is available (they only charge if it is), but we will gladly pass the contact details to the buyer if they wish to do this. The blade is the weakest, most aged component of this sword.

The 34 3/4 inch blade is overall good condition but with patina spots / patches; not pitted, so could be cleaned and replated. Blade firm in the hilt. The bowl guard generally good on the exterior, light rusting to the inside of the bowl. Grip in good condition. Leather scabbard good though with some marks and age. The sword sheathes and draws well. ERII cavalry Wilkinson swords are scarce.

A good example with original owner research possible; yours for £xxx. Please quote item reference L21 (1208). Further / full sized images available upon request.
