Sales enquiries

Rather than tell you about John Henderson Wright here, you are probably better off if you just read about him here. This Thurkle made sword was presented to him by Colonel Sir William Baillie Hamilton, KCMG, CB for being the best swordsman in 1897.

The 33 3/4 inch blade has patina patches throughout, more one side than the other, but etching still clear and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard is very sound (to good) but has suffered a light rusting. The grip is good, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The leather scabbard has some wear and a small thin surface possibly deeper split, the metal sections with some surface corrosion, but is sound to good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A good scarce sword once owned by a really interesting officer and can be yours for only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number AE81 (1020). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
