ERII Welsh Infantry Officer's Sword, Sold

In good condition, a highly unusual ERII Welsh Infantry Officer's Sword etched to Wilkinson Sword.

ERII Welsh Infantry Officer's Swordimage T62B 1

Sales enquiries

A very unusual sword to say the least. 100% British infantry officer's hilt / guard and grip, the blade looks and feels like a commemorative Wilkinson blade, etched with traditional dress Welsh lad, daffodil and leek (blank the other side). Having seen though never bought commemorative swords, we suspect the blade was in fact made by Wilkinson in their later years when they tried to find new markets to stay in business. Sheathed, you would absolutely see this as an official ERII infantry sword.

The 30 inch acid etched blade is in good condition but a little loose in the hilt. The hilt / guard is aged / tarnished (would clean / shine up with a good metal polish) but sound. The grip very good, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The leather scabbard (believed to be original to sword) has lost its chape / drag) is aged, weakening and fading. The leather frog is good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

An absolute must for any Welsh collector! Nid ire ew popeth melin. Yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference T62B (0783). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
