Title Le Froy Cup for fencing, 1939
Nationality British
Period 1939

This 'gold' medal, issued to the winner (in this case, Captain A D E Craig, a noted epee fencer of the era) by the London Epee Club, celebrates the sport of epee fencing in England, introduced from France in 1900.

The London Epee Club is still going and, indeed, the Le Froy Cup is still awarded on an annual basis.

This is a gilt bronze example (to simulate gold) and is in GVF/EF condition.

Just a brief note to confirm that the sabre has been delivered today. All is as it should be. I have to say I’m impressed with the ‘custom’ packaging, obviously essential in your line of business. I have made a very quick inspection of the sword & it fully lives up to your accurate description, very pleased with the purchase.
