WW1 British Cavalry Trooper's Wilkinson Sword
& Scabbard, for sale
In fair condition, a WW1 British Cavalry Trooper's Wilkinson Sword

Made by Wilkinson Sword just before the outset of World War One.
The 34 7/8 inch blade is generally in good condition but with some
pitting around the forte and patina patches towards the point. Blade
firm in hilt and grip. The hilt / guard is pitted (we have stabilized
the rust) but quite sound, though the section into the pommel is
crumpled (quite a common event on these swords). The composite grip
is in good condition. The steel scabbard is pitted throughout but
sound. The sword sheathes and draws well. All the rust has been
A good "restoration" project perhaps, or just an antique
from WW! to gaze at and wonder. A snip at just £300. Please
quote item reference number W99. Further / full sized pictures available
upon request. Box 1228-121x18x16 (2.715).
