WW1 era British Royal Navy Officer's Sword,
In overall good condition, a WW1 era British Royal Navy Officer's
Etched to retailer / cutler Friedeberger of Portsea.
The 31 3/4 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt.
The hilt also good but with some blue brass tarnish. The fishskin
grip is grubby but good. Some of the lesser twisted grip wires are
missing / astray but mostly good. The leather and brass fittings
scabbard has lost its locating pin, so the folding guard section
can not hold it in place. The sword sheathes and draws well.
Nice example, nicer price: £? (to late, now sold). Please
quote item reference T29 (0746). Further / full sized images available
