Sales enquiries

The unusual flat double disc quillon finales are reserved for cross-hilt swords for officers of the Royal Scots (The Royal Regiment). The extra wide 1 1/4 inch blade is impressive, especially with its very fine etching, the ricasso etched to "Scott Adie Ltd 115 Regent St London -W-", a well known Scottish outfitter in West London.

The 32 1/2 inch grey etched blade is in very good condition, some scuffing and small light rust spots, but not much; etched to King George V one side, with Scottish thistles the other. Blade is firm in the hilt, the hilt with some plating loss, the fishskin grip in worn but sound condition, twisted grip wire bindings absent. The leather field scabbard is generally good; it has an unusual round chape (possibly a metal chape finale was once present). The sword sheathes and draws very well.

A very good example for only £750. Full sized / additional photos available upon request. Please quote item reference number E78 - Box 836-1.18
