    About this item

    A Royal Artillery NCO's sword, by Wilkinson. 

    This example can be accurately dated to August 1904, via the serial number to the spine.

    Produced by Wilkinson of London.

    To all intents and purposes an officer quality sword, except for the small military inspection marking above the serial number on the spine, indicating it was purchased for use by an NCO.

    It has been service sharpened for field use. This is a good indication that this sword was carried during WW1.

    Three bar 1821 pattern hilt, with chequered backpiece. The grip with the original shagreen grip intact, and bound with silver wire binding.

    The blade is decorated with foliate etching, the Royal Artillery feathered lighting bolts, the words "Royal Artillery" a field gun, and crowned royal coat of arms. The blade has even patina and wear for its entire length, but is bright, and the etching legible.

    A substantial sword, with a blade length 34 inches, which would indicate a mounted use, perhaps Royal Horse Artillery. Signs of service sharpening, and some small edge nicks, but generally very good. No movement between blade and hilt.

    No scabbard.

    A good entry level collectors sword, or wall hanger with plenty of history.

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