George V Half Size British Military 1897 Pattern Sword by Henry Wilkinson, Pall Mall, London.
A half size British military 1897 pattern sword by Henry Wilkinson, Pall Mall, London.
This highly unusual Wilkinson sword has a brass engraved hilt or handguard with shagreen and brass wrapped handle. The blade is in superb condition with full length engraving including the George V moniker, and is stamped to Wilkinson at the ricasso and Star of David to the reverse. It comes complete with its original metal scabbard and engraved brass fittings.
Unlike, its larger full size counterpart, this example of Wilkinson’s work does not contain a serial number so it is likely to have been a boy’s ceremonial sword or perhaps a Wilkinson salesman’s sample.
A very rare and collectible example from this renowned company and in super condition.
Circa 1910 - 1936
