 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Probably from the reign of Christian X (1870-1947) or possibly his son Frederick IX (1899-1972), this would have been worn by Danish diplomats and senior members of the royal court. The arms on the guard date back to Frederick VIII (1843-1912). It is a high quality item made by Wilkinson Sword of London, with their logo etched at the forte.

The mounts are gilt bronze with mother of pearl grips. The design is a mid-19th century one, of French origin. Some 75% plus of the original gilding remains. The blade is the collichemard type (ie strengthened at the forte), an echo of 18th century design. The scabbard is black calf leather, in very good shape with slight wear to the top.

Just to let you know that the bayonets arrived safely this morning and I am extremely happy! They are everything that I had hoped they would be, but better! I am extremely pleased that i purchased them from you. The 1867 Albini ... is an absolute beauty, the blade is immaculate. The other is in fact in far better condition that I had imagined as well. So all in all, I couldn't be happier! Many thanks Chris.

I very much look forward to doing business with you again in the near future.
