Royal Artillery Patent Hilt Officers Sword

Royal Artillery Patent Hilt Officers Sword

Code: 11647


1821 Pattern Royal Artillery Officers Sword with Patent Hilt By Wilkinson Sword.

Intertwined initials to the blade, which look like "G.B.D." The number dates this sword to circa 1904. Unresearched by me.

Three bar 1821 pattern hilt, with chequered backpiece and stepped pommel. The gutta percha patent solid grip bound with silver wire binding. 

A substantial sword with a blade length of 35.5 inchess, which has been service sharpened.

The blade bright and clean, and decorated with foliate etching, the Royal Artillery feathered lighting bolts, the words "Royal Artillery" a field gun, and crowned ER VII cypher. 

The leather field service scabbard is in good condition, some minor scuffs and marks to the body of the scabbard and slightly buckled at the drag, but is a perfect fit and original to the sword.

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