Solid half-basket hilted sword

Solid half-basket hilted dress sword, of the type worn by all Commissioned Officers below the Flag rank. The sword belonged to Sub-Lieutenant W.G.P. Brigstocke (died 1940) of the Royal Naval Volunteer Reserve. The hilt of the sword consists of a gilt, solid half-basket guard with raised bars and a crown and anchor badge. There is a folding flap on the inside of the guard with a hole to take a pin on the top locket. The sword has a prominent tang button. The sword comes complete with a sword knot made of blue and gold cord with a barrel-shaped mound covered with blue and gold gimp, with blue bullion at the end. 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 of a very straight Wilkinson pattern, and is bound with three gilt wires.
