Solid half-basket hilt by unknown zoom

Solid half-basket hilt

Solid half-basket hilted sword, which belonged to Viscount Walter Runciman of Doxford (1870-1949). The hilt consists of a gilt solid half-basket guard, with a folding flap on the inside to take on the stud on the top locket, and raised bars. It appears that the usual crown and anchor badge of a naval hilt has been machined out and replaced by a smooth medallion, engraved on which are the arms of Trinity House. The sword has a lion's-head pommel and back-piece, the mane extending the length of the back-piece. The white fish-skin grip is bound with three gilt wires. The sword comes complete with a sword knot as worn in the Royal Navy before 1891.
