WW1 Imperial 1827 model Russian Cavalry Trooper's Sabre

Sales enquiries

A very rare 1827 model Imperial Russian light cavalry trooper's sabre with Nicholas 2nd's cypher to the blade and hilt backpiece (making it post 1909). Almost certainly a WW1 pick-up or from a fleeing / retreating white army soldier. Imperial marked swords after the Revolution were destroyed by communist Russia.

Made by Alex Coppel of Solingen, a noted maker for the Russian army, the 82 cm tri-fullered blade is in very good order overall with some rust spots, firm in the hilt, the hilt a little loose (no much), the ring bindings (twisted grip wire) missing but wooden grip in good order otherwise. Sheathes well into painted steel scabbard. Overall a very good condition example of a rare sword. Such is the scarcity of this sabre Further / full sized images available upon request. My item reference number is 549.
