Product Description

A fine, good condition example of a refurbished 1827 Pattern British Royal Navy Officer's sword by Wilkinson’s, bearing the King’s crown (1901-1952), but most likely to date from around 1910.

The sword has a slightly curved blade which is decorated with acid etched designs, including the crown and fouled anchor. It is a fighting sword, so has the proof plug stamp on the ricasso. The letters HW on the brass plug indicates the maker, Henry Wilkinson. The hilt has the brass basket with the crowned anchor and the pommel finishes in a lion’s head. The grip would have been covered in shagreen (ray leather), but was probably damaged or worn and has been recovered in white leather. The sword has been refurbished in order to be used by a current serving naval officer, so the brass fittings have been regilded and the blade replated and polished. The sword comes with its leather and brass scabbard and sword knot. Overall, the sword looks in very good condition, ready to be used on the parade ground.

All sword blades made by Wilkinson from 1844 onwards were proved by a brutal blade-testing machine and then marked on the forte with a countersunk circle and a gilded brass disc inset. This disc would have HW stamped onto it if the blade was from the ‘best proved’ product range or a number of other designs if it was to be sold to military outfitters.
