SWORDS FOR SALE

Royal Scots (Lothian Regiment) Field Officer's Sword

Description: One side of the blade of this sword is beautifully etched with the battle-honours of the Royal Scots from St Lucia (1803) to Pekin (1860) while the other side carries the motto ‘Royal Scots [Lothian Regiment]’ the royal VR cipher and the battle-honour for Egypt. This would date the blade to between 1880 (when the regiment was re-named under the Childers reforms) and 1899 when the regiment fought in the Boer War. The tang button is missing and the name of the outfitter is badly rubbed, though it is possible to make out the words ‘London’ and ‘..all’, so it is not possible to identify the maker. The hilt is of a later date, possibly inter-war, and is in good condition. The guard is nicely etched with the Royal Scots regimental badge and almost all of the plating remains with just some minor loss here and there. The shagreen and wiring to the grip are complete, there is some very minor movement between the hilt and the blade.

The pig skin scabbard is in good order and has a traditional Scottish ball chape.

Provenance: None know, though I would assess that this is a family sword that has been re-hilted as it has been passed on.

Price: Final sale price withheld.
