A highly unusual and unique British 1897 Pattern Army Sword with earlier Cavalry Blade - Wilkinson
This is a fascinating sword and of a type that I have not encountered before. It comprises an 1897 Pattern Infantry Officer's hilt (from the reign of King George V) for service in India and is combined with a terrific and wide, cavalry fighting blade by Wilkinson Sword (serial number dating it to 1883 - owner unknown). The blade is designed for combat and the owner must have intended to use it in the field. Is possibly a family blade that was kept by its owner through to the next two monarchs (Edward VII and George V). The hilt is nickel-plated with a grip bound with leather and copper twistwire and comes complete with original scabbard.
Condition of the Sword
In superb condition - blade is virtually mint.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 34.5 inches (41 inches overall).
