1822 Pattern George IV Pipeback British Infantry
Officer's Sword (Sold)
Stunning original 1822 pattern George 4th British infantry officer's
sword with pipe-back blade.
In very good order with good gilt percentage remaining, these swords
are very scarce, especially in such good condition. The pipeback
blade still with the tablet form etching with King George 4th's
cypher still visable. The scabbard still with the original frog
button still seen on these earlier swords.
The 32 inch quill pointed blade in good order and form in the hilt.
The folding guard in good order. The fishskin grip in very good
condition for age. The ring bindings (twisted grip wire) good, probably
a replacement. The leather and brass / gilt scabbard is good; the
leather a recent replacement and good for show though a little limp,
etc. (as no metal liner present). All in all a very attractive and
Further pictures available upon request. My item reference number
