WW1 / George V British Royal Artillery Officer's Swordimage Q37 1

Sales enquiries

No maker's / retailer's name to the ricasso, so most likely circa 1917, this sword was almost certainly made in Sheffield; the etching is both very pronounced and quite different to London based makers.

The 34 5/8 inch blade is in very good condition, the fine / highly defined etching in very good order, blade firm in hilt. The hilt / guard with some age / small plate loss patches. The faux fishskin grip good though a little worn and aged; the grip wires good, some lesser strands a little astray (not by much). The leather field service scabbard with some scuffs and age, bit overall good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

This is a very nicely etched sword in well above average condition. Yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference Q37 (0354). Further / full sized images available upon request.
