WW1 BRITISH '07 PATTERN BAYONET & ‘14 LEATHER FROG
A very, very nice, recently attic found, 1907 pattern British bayonet complete with a 1914 pattern leather equipment bayonet frog.
The assembly has been together, untouched for many years (I would suggest the frog was fitted during WW1) and as such they are ‘now as one’.
Bayonet is in excellent damage free condition. Scabbard is in lovely matching condition in brown leather. The frog sits well on the bayonet scabbard, and it can be seen that it has been fitted and undisturbed for many years.
Leather work throughout is supple and pliable.
Bayonet is with good maker and issue marks. Scabbard is issue marked also.
Bayonet frog is with faint regimental issue stamping and a very nice clear 1915 dated maker mark to its reverse side.
This item is best appreciated when viewed in ’the flesh’.
As with all my WW1 listings this is now an item 100 years of age. It was manufactured for combat and has survived the rigours of storage for the duration.
The item is accurately described and photographed.
Potential buyers, please be aware of its age and its intended use....It is not a new ‘shelf bought item’.
This is a SOLD Item.
