Sword, solid half-basket hilt
Solid half-basket hilted sword, which belonged to Admiral of the Fleet Lord John Arbuthnot Fisher (1841-1920). 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 lock with the stud on the scabbard. 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.
