Antique Swords  


The Baron of Earlshall Collection

The majority of swords in this collection were acquired from the Baron of Earlshall.   If you have been to Scotland and visited the Earlshall Castle in Fife, you would have seen these swords hung on the walls of the Long Gallery.

The Baron of Earlshall was a collector of basket hilted swords for over 30 years.   You will see in the description of some of these swords, a reference to them coming from another collector.  This indicates that the Baron had purchased the sword from another collector or museum.

We provide you with as much information as possible on each sword, whether it be the known history or the general condition of the sword.

All of the swords represent a piece of history.  The opportunity to own a bit of Scottish history is available to you, so enjoy browsing the swords and please contact us with questions using the email address shown below or by giving us a call.
