Sales enquiries

A good 1897 pattern George V British infantry officer's sword. Leather, rather than fishskin grip indicates it was intended for use, not just dress. The stamped proof mark as opposed to brass proof slug indicates 1917-1918, the height of World War One. Walters & Co (Oxford) Ltd (company registered 3rd February 1912) are a tailors / outfitters in business to this day.




The 32 /13 inch blade in good condition, etching still vivid, some patina mostly towards the point, firm in the hilt. The steel hilt in sound condition; has been cleaned. The leather grip and twisted grip wire bindings in aged and slightly worn though good condition. The leather field service scabbard is aged with scrapes / wear but good. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Nice WW1 example with provenance to Oxford. Yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference S29 (0614).
