Very rare true 1821 Pattern British heavy cavalry officer's sword with the full 36 inch blade as used by Victorian heavy cavalry (most so called 1821 Pattern heavy cavalry swords are actually 1896 Pattern variants with shorter blades used by light cavalry).

Johnstones of Sackville Street London and Dawson Street Dublin

Made by Johnstones of Sackville Street London and Dawson Street Dublin, this fact dates the sword to between 1861 and 1897. Although there is some wear, the sword itself is generally in excellent condition with relatively clear etching to the blade and very little in the way of blemishes / patina, although the scabbard has multiple dents, etc. The blade is firm in the hilt, the fishskin and ring bindings all good. Due to the scarce nature of true / strict 1821 pattern sabres and the fact this one is in such good condition. Further pictures available upon request.
