Solid half-basket hilted sword
The hilt consists of a gilt brass, solid half-basket guard with raised bars and an oval cartouche containing a foul anchor, slightly inclined to the left, surmounted by a lion rampant guardant holding between its forepaws a crown. This is probably a fairly early example of the 1847 pattern sword which is appropriate to the Indian Navy.
