1895 P Victorian Infantry Officer’s
Field Sword (sold)
1895 Pattern Victorian Infantry Officer’s steel hilted field
service sword with corresponding leather scabbard.
Very good condition steel hilted early (1895 Pattern) version of
the British Infantry officer's sword for field use. Not to be confused
with the very common 1897 Pattern, the very rare 1895 P seen here
is easily determined by the fact it has no turn down inner hilt.
Marked to maker W (William) S Carver of 70 Jermyn Street London
(1891 to 1899), the 32 inch blade is in very good condition except
for one very small nick near the tip. Blade firm in hilt, grip firm,
fishskin in good order, ring bindings good and complete except for
top ring (main twisted wire present, side / decoration for the upper
ring is missing). Complete with original leather field service scabbard,
this sword was made for active service. Further pictures available
upon request. My item reference number 138 (41)
