Sales enquiries

Very good example of a much sought after 1857 Pattern, with the pierced acanthus leaf design hilt. This particular sword is of the rarer gun metal hilt type, made by Passey and Tucker of London. The 32 inch (81.5 cm) blade is crisply etched with foliate designs, Victorian Royal Cypher and the thunderbolt, lightening and wings design of the artillery, showing this engineer was assigned to an artillery regiment, no doubt to maintain their guns. The sword is in very good condition for its age with some patina to the blade, which is firm in the hilt. The hilt itself is a little worn in places but retaining its fishskin and ring bindings in overall good order. The scabbard is in good condition and has been refinished in gun metal grey.
