Sold Item Notice

A fine Victorian officer's mameluke, made from 1876 to 1899 by Edward Thurkle Manufacturers, 5 Denmark Street, Soho, London. Probably closer to 1876, as has some tablet form etching still.

We 100% guarantee this is an authentic Victorian British infantry general officer's mameluke, not one of the many Indian made reproductions currently being sold as authentic on the market.

The 32 11/16 inch blade, well etched with crossed sabre and baton emblems for a general officer, plus Victorian royal cypher and scrolls, is in very good condition for its age; some spotting (mostly one side), some wear, but not much really. The blade is firm in the hilt. The ivory grip sections are good except for one crack under pommel one side. Two grip rosettes look like replacements; one is damaged but firm. The steel scabbard indicating a field officer is good, though with a light rust speckling which would probably clean up.

A lovely sword. Further / full sized images are available upon request. Please quote item reference L89 (1230)
