Circa 1800 Scottish Lowland Foot Regiment
Officer's Sword (Sold)
Very rare circa 1800 Lowland infantry officer's sword with earlier
Very rare variant of the 1796 Pattern British infantry officer's
sword with an older Spanish made blade fitted indicating the original
owner served with a Scottish lowland regiment of foot; English officer's
using either Prussian or English made blades. As yet, I have been
unable to identify the blade maker's signature, but it is certainly
The 63.5 cm blade is in keeping with the preferred "short
sword" style of the infantry at the end of the 18th Century.
It is firm in the hilt, the folding guard works well and the grip
is in good order. Further pictures available upon request.
