Firmin made British ERII Royal Naval Officer's
Sword and belts, sold
In very good condition, a Firmin made British ERII Royal Naval
Officer's Sword and belts.
Close to if not parade ground condition, may well suit a serving
British / Commonwealth naval officer.
31 Inch blade in very good condition with fouled anchor one side,
ERII royal cypher the other; blade firm in the hilt. The hilt very
good with gilt remaining (we noticed some cleaning polish residue
on the hilt in the photos after the item was boxed - this will easily
remove). Faux fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings are very
good. The gilt metal fittings on leather scabbard is losing its
gilt in places through rubbing / wear. The sword knot appears to
be in very good condition. The belts with some age / wear, appear
to be for a 34 or 36 inch waist. The sword sheathes and draws well,
the folding guard section does locate onto the locking pin of the
scabbard but not fully; enough to hold the scabbard in place.
A lovely example, well worth £xxx. Please quote item reference
number N80 (1330). Further / full sized pictures available upon
