Hi
I'm Rudy, new to this web site. Im looking for some information about a sword which I inherited. Firstly, I know nothing about swords. The sword was manufactured by Newton and Co, Hanover Sq, London. I've got an idea that it was an English ceremonial dress sword ?? I'd like some history on this sword if there is someone who knows about this and then possibly a value.

Rudy,
You need expert help to identify this English smallsword.
I am not good in identifying swords.

It is a British court sword. I don't know much beyond that, I'm afraid. I am not aware of any good references on British court swords, sink am not sure of the dates this style was introduced or discontinued. The earliest sword of this style I have seen is from the reign of William IV, and I have seen some Victorian examples, too. I am not sure if this pattern was still used into the 20th century. I will see if I can find the dates the retailer was active.

That fits with the pommel, which is in the shape of the Queen's rather than King's Crown.
