Sales enquiries

No maker's / retailer's name etched to the ricasso, so very likely made during World War 2 where urgency took precedent over such detail. Though, having said that, the sword has been superbly made and the blade exceptional is it bears not only the Northumberland Fusiliers (5th Regiment of Foot) iconic flaming bomb, but also Saint George and the Dragon. The hilt / guard of course also with the full badge of the Northumberland Fusiliers which sets it apart from other 1897 pattern infantry regiment hilts.

The 32 1/2 inch blade in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / guard very good, some very slight aging. Fishskin grip very good; some wear / staining but not much. Twisted grip wire bindings are present and correct. The field service leather scabbard and frog / straps with some age and scuffing but good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A truly excellent example of this most sort after regimental sword. You are unlikely to find a better one, especially for only £750. Please quote item reference number V91. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 1093-101x19x16 (2.087).
