Sales enquiries

This 1895P has an older fullered blade in it, from an 1854P infantry or 1827P rifle regiment sword, no doubt when the new 1895P was mandated. As a result, the maker / retailer's section on the ricasso is now inside the hilt.

The 32 3/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt very good but a small amount of grazing / patina to the inner hilt edge and inside of the guard as should be expected. The grip also very good but with some staining / wear, not much. The sword knot aged but good. The leather scabbard is very bespoke in that it is floppy; it was made without inner stiffening, for whatever reason; consequently the scabbard has a number of creases. The sword sheathes and draws well if a little loosely.

A quite unusual even bespoke example in very good order; a true bargain at £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference Q52 (0365). Further / full sized images available upon request.
