Victorian British Royal Naval Officer's Sword
& Scabbard, sold
In aged but sound condition, a Victorian British Royal Navy officer's
sword and scabbard (deficient).
With rare double top locket suspension rings, this sword blade
is marked to Ramsey of Devonport (a silversmith who was also involved
in swords), dating it from 1840 to 1859.
The 31 1/8 inch blade is sound but worn and with a steady patina
long both sides. Blade firm in hilt, the hilt good with folding
guard section working and some gilt remaining. The grip is quite
clean and good. The scabbard leather has fallen apart and has been
taped to solely keep the parts in place. Paying for the leather
to be replaced would basically double the value of this sword.
A nice example and only £(selling price available for a fee).
Please quote item reference number N05 (1287). Further / full sized
pictures available upon request.
