A rare pattern of 1788 Georgian British heavy cavalry sabre made by Osborne. The impressive large and shallow fullered 38 1/2 inch blade with crown and "BS" (Bordesly Street) stamps to the forte / ricasso and the feint remnants of the maker's name to the spine.

Everything is firm, the brass hilt is a little dented here and there as you would expect, the blade has a few cut marks to it, the leather grip is most likely a replacement but authentically and well done. Certainly one of the best 1788P's I have ever handled.

An exceptionally good investment at £1200. Further / full sized images available upon request. My item reference number is 470 (105).
