SWORDS FOR SALE

1854 Pattern Irish Guards Officer's Sword by Wilkinson dated 1913

Description: A rare 1854 pattern sword for the Irish Guards.

The blade is in excellent condition with just a few minor blemishes here and there. It is etched with the royal cipher for George V and the regimental badge of the Irish Guards.

The silver wiring to the hilt is present and has only a few loose strands while the shagreen of the grip has minimal loss. The plating to the outer part of the guard is a little worn, while the plating to the pommel and back strap, not unusually, has gone completely.

The scabbard has some scuffs to its leather exterior, though the mouthpiece and chape are in good order. The wooden liner is still present and has not been broken or crushed.

Provenance: This was formerly the property of Francis Gustav
de Stacpool.

Francis was born in London in 1890 to Pauline Duchess de Stacpoole nee MacEvoy and George Duke de Stacpoole.

He joined the Irish Guards in 1917 and served with them on the Western Front where he was severely wounded. He left the army in 1919 and moved to New Zealand where he died in 1973.

Price: Final sale price witheld.
