Sales enquiries

With matching serial numbers (39000) to the hilt and scabbard, with the maker's inscription for April 1913, this sword almost certainly saw a long active service during World War One.

The plain 30 3/8 inch twin fullered blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard in good shape, some age / tarnish but not much. The spiral grooved walnut grip is good but with some fading / wear, but has lost most of its twisted grip wire, which is common and tends to indicate the sword has been held firm several times. The steel scabbard is good but has a ding and been cleaned of most of its camouflage browning. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Nice sword, nice price; £400. Please quote item reference U29. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0858-1m (2.205).
