Sold Item Notice

Most likely mid to late WW1 (1917/1918) as no retailer (or maker) etched to the ricasso, when turnaround was important.

The etching on the 34" blade is still very clear but there is a band of darker patina half way down plus general wear and patina spots elsewhere. Blade firm in hilt. The hilt with age / discoloration and areas of inert rust / patina but sound. The fishskin grip in good condition overall, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The leather scabbard with age, losses and damage. The sword sheathes and draws well.

An honest example, just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number W17. Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
