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

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.

testimonials

The 3 medals have just arrived safely - very interesting. (From your description I was expecting ribbon to be dreadful; personally, I think that the "Russian Front" is beautifully 'aged'.)

The package arrived safely today. Thank you very much for the easy transaction and prompt shipping. I am very happy with the sword and hope to do business with you again.
