Sales enquiries

ERI for Edwardus Rex Imperator (King Edward 7th) showing this sword was for a British infantry officer serving in India. This sword etched to Hawkes and Co, which means it was made by Wilkinson Sword, and the quality shows.


The 32 3/8 inch blade is both extremely well etched and in very good condition, plus firm in the hilt. The steel hilt is very good, some tiny patina spots for the front / outside, the inside of the hilt with small rust / patina freckles. The fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings are both very good. The plated steel scabbard with stain and small patina spots, but good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

The ERI is a scarcer sword than the standard EVII Edward 7th version, and this one is in super condition. A great addition for any collection at £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference T30 (0743). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
