Victorian Era British 1827 Pattern Royal Navy Officer’s Sword With Etched Panels & Gilt Brass Basket Hilt By Bilney & Ashdown Portsea & Scabbard. Sn 15246 - 15246

The year 1827 brought about a radical change in the design of British Naval Officer’s swords. The Napoleonic stirrup hilt was replaced with a solid gilt brass half basket hilt based on the 1822 pattern Infantry Officer’s sword (see page 247 of World Swords by Withers). This is an excellent example of the 1827 pattern British Royal Navy Officer’s Sword and Scabbard. The Sword has a single edged blade with fullers which is 31” in length (36 ½” overall). The blade has just areas of light staining consistent with age and crisply etched with foliate panels on both sides and Queen Victoria crown above Naval fouled anchor on one side. The riccaso is marked on one side by the manufacturer ‘Bilney & Ashdown, Lion Terrace, Portsea’. The reverse has the ordnance acceptance proof star and inlaid ‘proof’ roundel. It has the correct gilt brass lions head with mane pommel and grip strap & half basket knuckle guard with the Royal Navy Queen Victoria Crown and fouled anchor motif. One side of the guard has a small hinged folding langet which, when folded flat fastens to a pin on the throat mount of its scabbard and holds the sword securely in place. The sword’s fish skin grip with wire binding is undamaged. The sword is complete with its black leather scabbard which has gilt brass mounts and 2 hanging rings. The leather and stitching of the scabbard are intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 15246
