1895 Pattern Victorian British Infantry Officer's Presentation Wilkinson Sword

Sales enquiries

The reason this sword is in such good condition, is it is quite clearly a retirement gift; marked simply "From D Company". Blade serial number 32624 for 1894, it is probably one of the very first 1895P's ever made, obviously. It may be possible to determine who the recipient was by paying to have the Wilkinson sales ledger researched; this may identify the regiment and then by looking at the Army List for that regiment's D Company, you would hopefully learn the recipient's name.

32 Inch blade in good condition, the etching still vividly clear. Blade firm in the hilt. The steel hilt mostly very good, some scuffing and slight nicks to the edge. Grip very good; twisted grip wire present and correct also. Some aging to steel backstrap. Later leather sword knot. The original leather scabbard is aged but sound, good condition. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A beautiful sword, and yours for only £xxx (too late - now sold - original sales price divulged for small fee). Please quote item reference number N88 (1339). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
