Sales enquiries

No maker's or retailer's name to the ricasso, so it was bought by the officer through a smaller bespoke tailors or similar outfitters. The quality of the etching is so good though, that it had to have been done by one of the top makers, for sure. The officer's initials to the blade, "L A H", so it may be possible to identify and research him.

The superbly etched high quality blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard has seen the test of time with a good amount of patina. The fishskin grip is in very good condition, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The leather field service scabbard has age but is good, the frog and belts are less good. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

One of the best blades for this sword model we have seen. The hilt could easily be refurbished if desired. Lovely sword, good price: £? (too late, now sold). Please quote reference number T74 (0805). Further / full sized images available upon request.
