Gilt brass gothic style semi-basket hilt with folding counterguard which locks to the scabbard; guard bears crowned anchor and gothic tracery; lion’s head pommel with backstrap completing its mane. Rayskin grip wrap with triple strand brass wire and ferrule at base. Slightly curved 29 3/4" blade with broad single fuller and spear point; etched with floral motif, a crowned anchor, and the queen’s royal coat of arms. Obverse ricasso with gold-inlaid star; the reverse etched with maker "GILLOT & HASSEL 36 STRAND LONDON" in 6 lines. Gillot & Hassel are listed at this address between 1853 and 1867. Black leather scabbard with gilt brass mounts and double carrying rings. Leather dry and flaking, mounts very good with just a single dent each side near the base of the drag. Hilt retains 90% plus original gilding; the blade with clear etching and a few small spots of corrosion on the upper half. Overall length 34", without scabbard. A nice example of a mid-Victorian naval officer’s sword.
