VICTORIAN STAG GRIP LARGE FOLDING KNIFE WITH SCABBARD.
These knives are often referred to as a Victorian explorer's knife or bowie knife.This example is much better quality than most as it has an unusual locking / opening system. Pressing the steel button inset into the stag horn grip plate releases the blade and when fully open it is then locked into place, to close the knife you lift the steel catch on the side strap, the blade can then be closed and it locks back into place with a small pin inside the grip that attaches to a tiny circular insert in the blade.The stag horn grip plates are in fine condition as are all the metal hilt fittings, the blade shows light wear as you would expect for a knife of this age. Complete with original leather scabbard with belt loop attached.The knife is not maker marked but i believe it is English probably produced in Sheffield or London but i have seen similar knifes in the past which have been German made.

ENGLISH HALLMARKED SILVER TANKARD PRESENTED TO THE DEVON RIFLE VOLUNTEERS AND DECORATED WITH THREE SOLDIERS.
This extremely rare and interesting large size silver tankard measures just under 6 inches in height with an attractive silver handle, the tankard has silver hall marks for London 1745 and at this period it would have been fairly plain in the typical Georgian style, this plain design was not favored by the Victorians and many are now found which have been up-dated with floral designs and other decoration but the example i have to offer is exceptional as it has been embossed with three soldiers of the Devon Rifle Volunteers in full military uniform and holding rifles, in the background are two tents and they are surrounded by trees, two of these trees have been formed with a space for an inscription which reads as follow, 1861 won by Langley Pope John Morgan, 1862 Corpl William Jarvis,1863 Corpl William Jarvis 1864, I imagine as Corporal Jarvis won the cup a number of times he was allowed to keep it. Below the rim of the tankard is the following inscription, CHALLENGE CUP PRESENTED TO THE 26TH DRV BY THE NEIGHBORHOOD OF KINGSBRIDGE. Below this inscription are the original silver hall marks with makers initials, English silver lion, crowned lion head and date letter K which dates the tankard to London 1745 which was the reign of King George the II. An exceptional and very impressive silver presentation military tankard which is now over 270 years old. [Condition: Near Mint]
