Victorian Naval Officers Court Sword, for
In aged and damaged condition, a rare Victorian Naval Officers
A very rare sword but not in the best condition; a rare Victorian
Naval Officers Court Sword. So this sword would have been worn by
the naval officer when in formal (not naval) dress. SA regular court
sword but with a fouled anchor (rather than a royal cypher) to the
hilt / guard.
The 27 1/2 inch blade in generally good condition but with the
very tip gone. Blade firm in hilt but probably as a result of repair.
The gilt on brass hilt shows its frail composition / nature with
bending and repairs. The leather and brass fittings scabbard is
quite good. The sword sheathes and draws well.
You are paying for rarity here folks; just £350, try finding
another! Please quote item reference T13. Further / full sized images
available upon request. Box 0731-1m (1.269).
