Hello again fellas. I've rather fallen in love with this hilt, but I can't find a pic of the blade. Any chance you could help?

The picture's copyright info makes it out to be a piece sold by the Porters, who ran Fine Antique Arms. I can't seem to find a website for them anymore. Maybe they're no longer in business.

It appears to be something that's disappeared into the private sector.

Happy

I believe Terry Porter passed away about five or six years ago. Most of his collection and stock was sold to various dealers. I know that Michael Long handled many of his higher end pieces. I remember that sword, its a nice one...

Everything I can see of it suggests Type XIX.
