Firmin & Sons
The 1827 pattern variant with small hilt is made of gilded brass and remains in good condition. The guard bears the Victoria crown and fouled anchor of the Royal Navy. The mane of the highly detailed lion head pommel flows into the back strap and the “D” guard extends from between the lion’s jaws.
The off-white bone grip is of high quality and in very good condition with a chip at the top and a few minor crack, but very solid. The twisted copper wire wrap is present and tight. The blade is firm in the hilt. The gilded hilt Chappes each have a Victorian Crown in relief and Royal Navy fouled Anchor. The 29.5" blade is nitre or fire blued with gilt decoration. Unfortunately the lower half of the blade was exposed to moisture and suffered damaged from rust which has now been removed to stop the deterioration.
The brass mounted black leather scabbard is original to the sword and is in very good condition. The brass mounts are in excellent condition, retaining much of their original gilding and are firmly in place. The sword sheaths and draws well and is held firmly within the scabbard.
This is a very good example of a hard to find Royal Navy 1827 pattern variant officer's sword, complete with its original leather scabbard. Ready to display!
