1821P Victorian British Light Cavalry Officer's Sabre

Sales enquiries

In very good order, this Reeves, Greaves and Reeves of Birmingham made 1821P British light cavalry officer's sabre was made between 1845 and 1849, just before the Crimean War and the infamous Charge of the Light Brigade. I know it was made during those years because ot the blade type, the tablet style etching and the address for the maker, 28 Bartholomew in Birmingham.

The almighty (for a light cavalry sabre) 35 1/4 inch blade is in very good overall condition; some black pitted areas and a little wear, but pretty good generally. Firm in the steel 3 bar hilt (some light rust which is now stabilized), the fishskin grip in very good order, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. It sheathes well into its leather fields service scabbard. Further / full sized images upon request. My item reference number is 649 (284)
