Georgian Scottish Dirk, Donald Currie, Sold
In good overall condition for its age, a rare (London made) Georgian
Scottish infantry piper's dirk, Donald Currie of Regent Street,
Donald Currie was a London based army accouterment maker and tailor.
The plain 10 1/4 inch period sharpened blade is in good condition,
a little loose in the hilt, but not much. The bogwood oak grip has
some age splits, nothing serious. The fittings are a little loose
and aged, but still present. The leather sheath is splitting along
the seam and is bending from age, but is complete and could be restored.
The original knife and fork set are present; a prong of the fork
a little bent. The dirk sheathes and draws well enough.
This is a rare item. We are crazy for selling at for only £850,
so do not hesitate or you will likely lose it to someone else. Please
quote item reference L28 (1190). Further / full sized images available
