WW1 British Infantry Officers Sword, Oldfields Liverpool

Sales enquiries

The etching very feint, but the retailer's name "Oldfields, Liverpool" just visible. The sword has a non-plated steel hilt and has all the signs of having been made in Sheffield, especially given the bulbous nature of the guard and etching type.

The 32 inch blade is good and firm in the hilt, but the etching very feint. The steel hilt is very good, the grip also good. The leather scabbard, sword knot (remains of) and belts are all very aged. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A very nice example, especially with the Liverpool connection. A great price, just £375. Please quote item reference AC89. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0382-1m (2.053).
