Beautifully refurbished early 20th Century British P1827 Royal Navy officer’s sword. The 797mm single edged blade has a broad, flat spine tapering to a false edge and spear point. A broad single fuller runs along both sides of the blade ending in a medial rib down to the point. The blade is etched with a crown and the Royal Navy fouled anchor motif between fouled oak leaves and acorns. The obverse of the blade bears the royal coat of arms and motto amidst fouled oak boughs. The blade is clean and bright and in excellent condition. The ricasso bears a brass proof slug containing the letter “H” below the word “Proved,” above a fleur de Lis. The obverse ricasso bears the retailers details, Stumbles & Son, Fore Street, Devonport. The solid half-basket hilt is made of gilded brass and is in excellent condition. The bowl of the guard bears the Georgian crown and fouled anchor of the Royal Navy. The inner folding guard is in perfect working order and mates nicely with the pin on the scabbard. The folding guard bears the officer’s name, G.J.P. Cooksley. The mane of the highly detailed lion head pommel forms the back strap and the “D” guard extends from below the lion’s chin. The twisted copper wire wrap is present and in excellent condition. The brass mounted black leather scabbard is original to the sword and is in excellent condition. The sword sheaths and draws well and is held firmly within the scabbard. This Royal Navy officer’s sword is in excellent condition. Given a polish, it would be parade ready. This would be a great sword for a serving officer.
