Sales enquiries

The etching is feint from age, so the maker's / retailer's name while (just) still there, is illegible.

The 32 1/8 inch pipe back slender dress weight blade with feint tablet etching is firm in the hilt. The brass hilt has some deformation, which is common, but is overall good. much gilt remaining, the folding guard section still working. The fish skin grip is good except for a tiny nibble / scrape. The twisted grip wire bindings are very good. The brass scabbard (for a senior officers) has a couple of minor dings and scratches and some discoloration but is overall good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

We wonder who the officer was. This is a lovely sword in well above average condition. Grab it quick; £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference U46 (0870). Further / full sized images available upon request.
