1912 Cavalry Officers Sword

1912 Cavalry Officers Sword

Code: 11405


A very pleasing and untouched George V WW1 period example, housed in its field service scabbard and complete with original sword frog.

The Shagreen grip is entirely complete, and in good condition, the twistwire is also complete.

The large bowl guard is well decorated, and without any dents or buckles. The steel is free from pitting, and could be polished bright if desired. The interior is discoloured, and would benefit from a clean. The destinctive, chunky, wreathed pommel also in good condition, with fine chequering.

35 inch blade decorated with beautiful clear floral etching, with George V crowned cypher, and vacant escutcheons. Still covered in a layer of old dirt/grease. Some light staining, and rust, but no pitting.

The Scabbard is original, and an excellent fit. It has some areas of loss to the upper body, and the stitching is absent along its entire length. It would benefit from some gentle TLC to enhance it consmetically, but it does have the bonus of retaining its original frog. 

These Great War examples are getting harder to come across, this is an excellent opportunity to acquire an original, untouched example, which once cleaned would grace any collection.

Strictly over 18's only. Photo ID will be required before this item can be dispatched.
