Sales enquiries

Etched at the forte to Samuel Levy of 28 King William St., Strand (London), a sword cutler who was at that address from 1839 to 1865. The sword therefore dates from 1837 (Queen Victoria's coronation) to 1845 when the pipe back blade was replaced by a fullered blade.

The 32 inch blade is in very good condition but with now very feint etching. Blade firm in the hilt. The brass hilt with some gilt remaining is in good shape. The fishskin grip in very good condition for its age, as are the associated twisted grip wire bindings. The brass scabbard (for a senior officer) in good condition. The folding guard section works well. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A very attractive early Victorian Gothic hilt sword, and in well above average condition. Well priced at £? (too late, now sold) . Please quote item reference number AF60 (1143). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
