The 30 1/8 inch blade is in very good condition with 90%/95% blue and gilt etching remaining; some patina patches towards the point but small and not too many. Blade firm in the hilt. The gilt hilt in very good condition; some age / wear but not too much. The fluted mother of pearl grip scales in very good shape. Some overall age to the area with minor movement of the grip scales away from the metal sections but nothing major. The leather and gilt brass scabbard is so good it may be a replacement, but maybe not. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Very few of these swords exist / remain in such excellent condition. A really gorgeous investment, just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number AF54 (1128). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
