Early Victorian British RN Officer's Pipeback Sword

Sales enquiries

It is rare to find these early Victorian, circa 1840, swords in such good condition with the etching still fairly clear.



28 5/8 Inch blade is in very good condition for its age. Although aged / worn, the etching is still clear, especially the fouled anchor. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt / guard with some worthwhile gilt remaining. The fishskin grip good but the grip wire bindings a little wayward in places. The folding guard works well. No maker's name but this is quite common as the makers / cutlers often just put their details on the scabbard, which is absent for this sword.

Nice sword for only £xxx (too late, now sold - original sales prive divulged for small fee). Please quote item reference M71 (1273). Further / full sized images available upon request.
