Scottish 1750-1800 Highland Infantry Officer's Basket-hilted Broadsword
A rare and complete Scottish 1750-1800 Highland Infantry Officer's Basket-hilted Broadsword with fine, pierced iron basket hilt of Highland form. With pierced hearts and roundels to the hilt. Wooden grip and remains of tassels and red velvet buckskin liner. The blade is engraved with name of Andrea Ferara and a running wolf mark to each side.

The sword comes complete with an iron and leather mounted scabbard.
