Sales enquiries

A high quality sword bearing the owner's / officer's family crest, made by one the very best makers, Pillin.




The 32 1/4 inch supremely well etched blade is in very good condition (some small patina patches mostly away from the etching) considering its age, and firm in the hilt. The steel hilt is very good, some light pitting spots, some patina. The grip with wear, age and a small area of fishskin one side under the pommel missing, but otherwise good. The twisted grip wire all good. The lovely Victorian leather and steel fittings scabbard with age but still good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

They don't and can't make them like this any more. Yours for only £375. Please quote item reference U11. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0843-1m (1.759).
