Title Royal Navy officer's sword, George V
Nationality British
Period c 1914
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

A fine example with 98% original gilt intact. The blade has nearly 100% factory finish with a few minor spots of surface rust. The original scabbard leather is in excellent shape, complete with a slightly scruffy bullion sword knot and oil skin bag with chamois leather lining (buckles a/f).

The blade is proof marked for Thurkle in a small nickel inset within the Star of David at the base of the blade. Thurkle was a London cutler and it is probable that he made this blade for the retail tailors' trade, hence no name and address in bold lettering, as one would normally expect.

testimonials

Just a quick line to advise that the badges have arrived in good condition and I am very pleased with them.

Thanks again for your prompt and kind attention.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
