A unique British Presentation sword, named and dated.

A rare opportunity to obtain a simply stunning and unique Presentation sword from a long standing and historically important Regiment from a historical English Event.
This stunning sword measures just under 101cms long in the scabbard, 99cms out with a blade length of 84cms.
A remarkable sword in every aspect.
The scabbard is full silver plate with the entire surface decorated in engraved floral designs with a coat of arms two thirds the way town. The suspension rings are a striking rope twist pattern that further sets this sword apart. The screws and friction lock usually found against the blade as it enters the scabbard has been removed a long time agaon and with good reason, it has prevented any rubbing agaist the blade and kept it in near mint condition.
The hilts is again unique in that the entire guard is fully chased and gilded of the finest quality as is the back strap. The grip is ivory, something usually reserved for naval swords and very rarely seen elsewhere.
The bullion thread binding the hilt remains pristine. The guard retains its original buff sword knot in outstanding condition.
The blade shows the retailer name and address in the forte and a brass proof plug to the reverse
To one side of the blade there are various floral designs and regimental insignia of the "2nd VB" Duke of Wellingtons West Riding Regiment.
The other side carries a wonderful and unique presentation the Captain R Welsh on the occasion of the Queens Jubilee June 27th 1887.

A remarkable and unique sword that I cannot praise enough.
