Price £100.00

 ADD TO CART

There is a single letter in Gothic script on the metal covering the stem of the knot, probably an 'L', which would be for one of the minor Saxon dukedoms of this period. This extremely rare sword knot is, unfortunately, in rather poor shape commensurate with its age, but its original quality is still apparent.

The ribbon is frayed in many places. There is a series of sequins missing from the stem of the knot, as well as some of the metal covering and bullion elements of one of the letters. All in all, however, this was a fantastic quality item, originally being in gold bullion (though possibly silver), the tassels being definitely of a gold and silver mixture with a green silk underlay.

Thank you, Chris. All arrived safely. Very quickly too, much quicker than from the US! Very satisfied. It is a nice sword.

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