This is a Medieval styled Knights Templars Sword from circa the 1890's to early 1900's. We purchased this item quite a few years ago. It was part of a collection once belonging to Atlantic City's historic and defunct Masonic Temple. The Sword is very well made and it is attractive. However it is old and therefore has some age issues. The blade has areas showing residue of where pitting had been cleaned off. Because of the residue scarring, some of the designs are obscured. But the blade still is strong and it even has a nice sheen to it. The scabbard has the original owners name etched on it and there are two small holes in that area. We think that a small presentation plaque had been added to the scabbard, because this sword had once been displayed on the wall of the old Masonic Temple of Atlantic City, New Jersey. Other then some signs of common oxidation, the scabbard is solid and fine. One must understand that this item is over 100 years old and as such, cannot be mint. The sword has some fascinating elements. Some of the mounts are silver and others still retain their original brass colour tints. There is a gorgeous and ornately designed Jewel-like Enamel Cross in Crown. The middle Mount features the ancient Templar Warrior standing guard. The point of the blade is rounded so as to prevent injury. The name of the owner is etched there (and on the scabbard). The maker here is the famous "Henderson-Ames Company". When legendary Sword maker Frank Henderson united with the landmark historic "Ames Sword Company", the newly named "Henderson Ames Company" was born.Swords by “Henderson-Ames” often rivaled the best Swords by “M. C. Lilley & Co”, “The Pettibone Brothers”, “Horstmann of Philadelphia” and their old predecessor, “The Ames Sword Company”. A fabulous collector's Masonic Chivalric York Rite Sword. Here we have a strong appreciation of the Medieval age. Without doubt, a collectible Antique Masonic Chivalric York Rite Sword. This Sword in its Scabbard measures approximately 37 ¼ inches. Alone, the Sword is around 36 inches. And the Blade is about 28 ¾ inches. A Genuine Historical Masonic Memento. Do not permit it to pass you by. We regularly feature extremely attractive and also very rare, top quality antiques including among the finest in Fraternal and Masonic Swords and Historic Relics as well as many other fascinating items. Among our clients are Museums and Archives as well as many collectors the world over. Please keep checking our Classicliterati sales. We try to describe items to the best of our ability. Please ask questions before offerding. FREE SHIPPING IN USA. Payment is expected within 5 days of sale close.
