We have seen some beautiful Murch items come up for auction this year and this is up there at the top of my wish list. Coming up for auction today is a 19th Century naval officer's sword and brass mounted leather scabbard by E Murch of Kings Street Devonport with ray skin hilt, lion pommel and brass guard, 75cm blade, with a similar French naval sword with leather scabbard, 81cm blade.

This piece of craftsmanship is really exciting and I shall be putting in a bid later today. If you are interested in watching the sale it will come up on thesaleroom.com live. Estimated at £60-90 the sale is taking place at Mantiques Auctions, Mill Race Lane, Stourbridge, West Midlands DY8 1JN United Kingdom.
