Etched to renowned Friedeberg of 81 Queen Street, Portsea, the Edwardian Crown and Friedeberg’s address dating this sword from 1901 to 1913. Complete with original sword knot, scabbard and all weather carry bag.
The 31 1/2 inch blade in very good condition, very little wear / rust / patina, and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard in very good condition though most surface gilt is gone. The white fishskin grip very good for its age, as are the twisted grip wire bindings, just one lesser strand we can see that is slightly astray. The original sword knot with age and wear / some fraying though sound. The leather and brass fittings scabbard is good but could use some shoe polish perhaps, plus the scabbard retaining pin has more recently been reattached. The all weather bag is good but with age and wear. The sword sheathes and draws well.
A well above average example of this antique Edwardian / WW1 RN officer’s sword, just was £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference AG66. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box?
