Sales enquiries

It is very rare to find these iconic cavalry swords complete with their WW1 camouflage paint. The regimental markings on the inside of the hilt and scabbard are not clear, but look to be the same; some careful cleaning would probably identify the regiment. The blade is dated to March 1915 and marked to Wilkinson.

The 35 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard retains much original dark green over yellow primer war time camouflage paint and has very little denting / bending / scuffing. The pommel has a light rust but is sound. The grip with some wear. The steel scabbard in good condition, some light rust but not much, slightly bent towards the point (probably period). The sword sheathes and draws well.
