A beautiful, traditional sword of a Scottish infantry officer.
This used, British Army, Highland Regiment officer's weapon, dates back to the claymore, used by the Scots since the 17th century.
This 1828 model has a double-edged blade with two fullers and is etched on both sides.
The etchings show typical Scottish motifs, thistles and foliage.
The basket hilt has a dome-shaped pommel with a red fringe, lined on the inside with red felt and a blue edge.
The leather-covered handle is wrapped with copper wire.
The sword scabbard is made of steel and has two suspension loops.
It is probably from the time around George V.
All in all, a beautiful, sought-after object by collectors.
