Description :(Scroll down to see enlarged views) Fabulous antique sword, use for ceremonial costuming or hang on the wall, either way an nice old collectible sword. Estate sale find, former owner now deceased, the relatives thought this was from Scotland but I don't know for sure. He collected lots of swords and armor. It is heavy and I didn't find any markings on the blade but there is an "X" mark on the underside of the guard and a "square" on the back side of the handle and some kind of double headed winged creature on the front, looks like a griffin. The handle is wire wrapped and there is a crown on the top. The total length is 37 1/2". Sold as found with some normal surface age wear, a little rust and pitting, see photos.
