Hello Fellow Collectors
I have just obtained an 1827 British Naval Sword. Managed to swap two bayonets for it here in Norway.
But its pitted badley on the blade and very worn. The first thing that concerns me is the flat faced lion !!!
He has a snout like a car front with two headlights ! Has anyone else seen similar ?
The maker mark is very faint but I think it says :
C.Lake &Co
Edgecombe st
Stonehouse
Devon
Cannot seem to google much on this company. So wonder about the date and origin of this weapon.
Best regards
Nigel
