A SCOTTISH BASKET HILT BROADSWORD C.1730

About the piece


A fine example of impressive proportions. Large fighting hilt of Glasgow form with fretted and pierced panels flanked by flattened bars. Large rolled quillon. Wire wrapped spirally fluted leather covered grip. Blade with broad central fuller at the forte etched each side with PRUDENTIA ET CONSTANTIA, and crowned Georgian royal cipher with the GR obliterated both sides. The motto identifies this sword as belonging to a member of the Denman family. The Georgian crown with the cipher of George IIobliterated not only date it to pre Scottish Rebellion, it testifies to the choice of Scottish allegiance when the time for choosing came. Further, by implication, it places this example in the Rebellion itself. Any Scottish sword with such personal family association is exceedingly rare.Blade length: 37"
