United Kingdom - 1829 - Henry Wilkinson - Portepee, Schede - Sabre

Very beautiful, rare, historical, antique Royal Navy officer's sabre. Model 1829.
The blade is hollow-cut and 1-sided sharp. The last 25 cm of the blade is 2-sided sharp.
Nicely etched on both sides. In very good condition. No rust or discoloration.
Both on the scabbard and on the blade is the creator, Henry Wilkinson - Pall Mall - London. Traces of gilding on the hilt. With good working safety (see pictures)
This sabre is published in the name of G.A.G. Grey, this is etched on the blade. The Grey family (much can be found on the internet) was an important English family and produced various politicians and high-ranking soldiers. The three ostrich feathers were the personal emblem of the Prince of Wales. Since Henry Wilkinson was the creator, G.A.G. Grey must have been the owner or the commanding officer. (info from Nationaal Militair Museum)
On the back of the blade is a number, 15299.
The sheath is in good condition. The leather has slight traces of use (but completely intact)
