1798 Pattern Scottish Highland Infantry Officer’s
Exceptionally rare Napoleonic wars era Scottish highland infantry
officer's broadsword made by Woolley.
Please also see my listing for an equally rare Sergeant's sword
of the same pattern; 1798P
Rare Napoleonic Scottish Highland Sergeant's Broadsword.
This is an exceptionally rare and fine Waterloo era Scottish highland
officer's sword; many if not most such officers having fought Napoleon's
Imperial French army, this item has a very good chance of having
Rare to find one with the prized Woolley & Co name and "Warranted"
to the 84.5 cm blade's fuller either side. This famous critically
English maker's name increases the prospect this sword was carried
by serving front line officer. The brass hilt, so prone to damage
given the relative softness of that metal, is in very good order
save for one small easily repairable break to one of the bars.
