Pre-1970, when Gieves stopped trading. Gieves sold swords under their own name made by Wilkinson Sword.
31 1/4 Inch blade in mostly very good condition but with some rust / rust removed patches. Blade firm in the hilt. The hilt with much gilt remaining is good; the folding guard section works well and locates onto the scabbard holding pin. White patented faux fishskin grip good but loosing some surface spots; the twisted grip wire bindings are good. Sword knot aged and a little grubby but good. The leather and brass fittings scabbard good but the fittings are losing their gilt finish. The sword sheathes and draws well.
Maybe not parade ground condition but close. Yours for was £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference X49. Box 1297-103x19x17 (1.884).
