Solid half-basket hilted sword by Henry Wilkinson zoom

Solid half-basket hilted sword

Owned by Admiral L.A.B. Donaldson (d.1956) and Admiral Vernon D'Arcy Donaldson (fl.1924-54). The hilt is of regulation style, with a gilt brass solid half-basket guard, pierced for a swordknot, with knot in situ. There is a lion's-head pommel with mane extending to form the back-piece. The grip is covered with fish-skin, painted white, and bound with three gilt wires.

The blade is a broadsword type ('claymore'), etched for two-thirds of its length. The scabbard has top and mid lockets of gilt brass, decorated with engraved lines and scrolls and with a ring at the back. The chape is of gilt brass with pointed shoe. The folding flap is engaged by a stud on the top locket. There is a leather sword bag.
