    Pre 1859 Victorian Gentleman’s Malacca Sword Stick By Mole (Birminham)With White Metal Fitting By ‘WM’ (William Mappin Now Mappin & Webb). Sn 12015 - 12015

    In 1775, at the age of 18, Jonathan Mappin started a small cutlery workshop in Sheffield. Within a year the first Mappin hallmark was recorded at the assay office and in 1780 Jonathan Mappin was given the Freedom of the Cutlers Company. Jonathan Mappin’s Son Joseph followed him into the business and was also a Freeman, then came his Grandson, also called Joseph. But it was under his four Great Grandsons, who incorporated the business as Mappin Brothers Ltd, in the middle of the 19th Century that the significant expansion began. In 1849, Joseph Mappin opened his first eponymous London showroom at 15 Fore Street; shortly afterwards the eldest Brother was knighted, becoming Sir William Mappin but as the business grew the Brothers each took a different path. Sir William Mappin left in 1859, to become the senior partner at Thomas Turton & Sons’ steel mill, and gave his share of Mappin Brothers to the other 3. This is an excellent original Victorian Malacca Sword Stick . The sword has a 27” single edged blued steel blade with partial fuller. The blade is marked by the Birmingham Cutler ‘Mole’ famous for quality Military & Private purchase blades. The sword measures 33 ½” overall in its scabbard. It has white metal fittings on the handle and throat. The throat mount has a push button scabbard retaining catch which works as it should. The neck of the ball end pommel is impressed with a small ‘WM’ cartouche (William Mappin). Its scabbard is undamaged & the tip of the scabbard has a conical brass end cap. Price for this attractive Victorian sword stick by famous Birmingham & London Cutlers London Cutler includes UK delivery. Sn 12015
