In good condition, a Thai Naval Officer’s Elephant Sword, Scabbard and Knot
Probably mid to late 20C. With Thai maker’s mark to blade.
The 27 inch plain (except for maker’s mark / logo) blade is in good condition but with some scuffing and is firm in the hilt. The hilt has some age / tarnish but is overall good. The fishskin grip is in very good condition, the twisted grip wire bindings are good. The scabbard has some wear / age but is overall fair to good and sound. The folding guard section works well and locates properly onto the scabbard’s top locket’s retaining pin. The sword sheathes and draws well.
A great and unusual looking sword at a great and unusually low price; (was) £575, now £460 . Please quote item reference Y21. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1424-101x19x16 (1.800).
