Sales enquiries

Etched at the ricasso / forte; "F. W. Forsyth Ltd. Highland Accessory Maker Edinburgh & Glasgow". The pommel type (with Saltire) shows this sword was for an officer of the Highland Light Infantry.

The 32 3/4 inch blade is in good condition, some light tiny speckles, some wear, but still good and clear, and firm in the hilt. The hilt with some similar aging, the grey "fishskin" grip a little faded but good, the twisted grip wire bindings in very good shape. The leather and plated metal fittings scabbard aged but good (the frog suspension loop dry, creased, aged and detached). The sword sheathes and draws well.

Lovely looking sword in above average condition. An investment for sure at £700. Please quote item reference number P70. Full sized / additional photos available upon request. Box 0233-1.18 (1.976)
