Description

SOLD

Offered is an original 1827 Pattern Royal Navy type Officer’s sword & scabbard. This piece is in relatively very good condition, retaining a large amount of the original gilded finish to the brass metal furniture, including the lion head pommel, lion’s mane backstrap, locket & Queen’s Crown adorned elaborate full guard. The original full bullion knot is still attached, making this is a very presentable complete piece.

The 79cm long slightly curved nickel blade shows hand etchings to both sides of the blade, running 2/3 the entire length. The etching is shows the usual foliate arms, QVR early crown & fouled anchor with etched proof star. The leather buffer is retained and shows much use. The blade is in remarkably good condition and would rate 8 out of 10 with most wear to the end tip area.

The leather and brass scabbard is in very good condition, being the black leather type, showing some restoration to upper locket. The brass furniture is very good, with the usual triangular type drag. The sword fits and locks without any issued and would be a very well presented piece in your naval collection. This type was/still used by the Commonwealth Navies, including Britain, Australia, New Zealand etc.

The entire length of the sword and scabbard measures 98cm long. Given the marking etc. on the blade, I would date this as an 1880’s era made piece.
