    help me identify the English diplomatic sword

    Hello to all. Can you help me identify the English diplomatic sword.
    I had similar ones in my collection, but without a flower on the guard.
    I will also be grateful if you can help me find information about the owner of the sword.

    Hello,

    I have not studied this type of sword, but have a few 'stupid' ideas.

    Could it be a 'refurbished' sword ? The blade inscription of two names and a date make me think of an original civil uniform court sword modified for a wedding.

    The flower is quite similar to the one found on the Catterick Garrison Symbol, though it is certainly to be found elsewhere.

    Best regards,

    Government sword associated with the county of York? AKA the White Rose of York

    The rose is the symbol of England and can be found in the guards of the 1845-54 pattern British infantry sword. These swords have the rose, thistle and shamrock for England, Scotland and Ireland.
