Circa 1795 British / Scottish Fusilier Officer's Sword (sold)

Possibly light infantry though most likely a fusilier officer's sword, either an English regiment with a captured earlier Scottish blade or a Scottish regiment with a family blade.

1795 British / Scottish Fusilier Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

A really fine example of a late 18th Century British / Scottish fusilier officer's sword with a 17th Century Prussian Passau Wolf / Ferera marked blade; either a battle spoil (from Culloden, etc.) or a family blade. Irrespective, this is a very fine sword for the era and makes most others look a bit like toys.

The very fine blade is pretty firm in the hilt, a little looseness, not much. The hilt is exceptionally fine though clearly patinated (browned). The fishskin grip is in mostly good order. The twisted grip wire is present, a little loose in places. I would accept £1000 for this sword. Further / full sized images available upon request. My item reference number is 548 (24)
