1845 / 1854 Pattern British General Officer's
In good condition, a scarce British infantry general officer's
sword and scabbard.
Good as is or perfect for restoration given the blade is in such
good condition; metal polish the brass scabbard and have a refurbisher
re-gilt the hilt, and you have an exceptional display sword.
A piquet or levee general officer's sword, marked to cutler Pulford
& Son (1844 to 1897), I believe this sword dates to the 1870's.
The 33 inch blade is well etched including crossed sword and baton,
the emblem of a general staff officer, and in very good condition;
some slight rust blemished and sheathing wear but not much. The
hilt has lost its gilt but is very sound. The hilt and grip have
a little movement, not much and this is quite easily cured if desired
(push a wood splinter up the tang from the front of the hilt). The
fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings are in good order.
The brass scabbard tarnished from age but sound. The sword sheathes
well and the scabbard holds the sword when fully sheathed. Further
