Default Sword 1895/1897

Dear frends.
1. FREDERICK BARNES has stopped the work in 1904. But on a handle a monogram of GeograV. Somebody can explain it?
2. To me words SWORD CUTLERS TO THE WAR OFFICE aren't clear? Usually the officer bought a sword only from the private companies?
3. Somebody knows a brand on a hilt?
I will be grateful for the answer. Respect, Alexander.

Hi,
Manufacturers of this sword is Fenton brothers.
Firm established in 1875 at South Moor Works, East Street, Sheffield by John Frederick Fenton and Frank Fenton. The firm was converted into a limited liability company in 1896 under the style Fenton Brothers Ltd.
The company is a manufacturer and jewelry.The rest will tell other members.

Dear sisi_d. I have mixed instead of John Frederick Fenton and Frank Fenton, I have sent Frederick Barnes. It is my error. I am sorry. On a hilt I have read a brand. Remains not clear as the military brand is combined with firm Fenton? Respect, Alexander.
