SUPERB QUALITY VICTORIAN SWORD STICK WITH ENGRAVED BLADE WITH ROYAL MOTTO.
Superb sword stick, the handle looks almost like a rattle snakes tail and this was probably the intension. The stick looks like bamboo but it was probably carved from a hard wood to simulate this. Pulling the handle away from the stick reveals a long lethal blade which is finely engraved on both sides with long floral panels, the blade also has an interesting inscription that appears on both sides, Honi Soit Qui Mal Y Pence, which translates as, SHAME ON ANYONE WHO THINKS EVIL OF IT, this is actually the motto that is used on the British Royal family coat of arms. This is a superb sword stick and much higher quality than most you will see and it dates to about circa 1880. [Condition: Exc++]
