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.

Just to let you know that the kukri arrived today safe and sound, many thanks for sending it so quickly. I'm more than pleased with this kukri, I'm so glad I spotted it on your website as I don't think I've ever seen another one like it for sale anywhere.

Once again many thanks and I hope to do business with you again in the future.
