Acquired together with the en suite replica rapier, X.1789. Both were made for theatrical use and previously owned by Henry Marshall, fight director, and were sold by Mr Wood on behalf of Marshall's daughter, Miss Emma Battcock. The rapier and dagger may possibly have been made by Lewis Shaw, USA, circa 1960s. All the foregoing information was supplied by Mr Wood at the time of the purchase.
