    ~ WW1 Era 1897 Pattern Infantry Officers Sword By Ranken ~


    Here we have a nice piece with an interesting manufacturing history. The sword is the standard sword carried by British infantry officers in the Reign of George the Fifth. The sword has been kept in its chromed or nickel plated dress scabbard rather than its field service scabbard and aside from your standard wear and tear remaains a beautiful and highly detailed piece.

    The sword was retailed by Ranken and Co of Calcutta, a famous Anglo Indian retailer of swords in the British Empire, the blade however was manufactured by Mole and Sons who were Retailers to the War and India Office. These two facts make it likely that this sword was made for a British or Indian officer in the British army.

    Overall this is a brilliant example of the form with a detailed guard, nice deep etchings, a serial number that is worth extra research and made more interesting with its plated scabbard.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The sword is 41 inches (104 cm) long.

    The blade is 34 inches (86 cm) long.

    The sword weighs 1.45 Kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The sword is in good condition for its age with some fading to the etching and the age showing on the plating.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £25 or it can be inspected in our Portsmouth shop.
