Title Royal Navy officer's sword, George V
Nationality British
Period c 1914
 (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.

The parcel has arrived - at the time you indicated.

The sword lives up to expectations and looks even better than on the website. The detail and etching is superb.

Thanks so much for your help and the extra information.

Anyway, thanks again and I have marked your site for future interest.
