1885 Pattern British Cavalry Trooper's Sword
In very good condition, a British 1885P cavalry trooper's sword
/ sabre and scabbard.
Made by Weyersberg, Kirschbaum & Co of Solingen (British makers
of the time could not produce enough, so the War Department went
to Prussia to get what they needed). This is a very good 1885P with
plenty of markings to the blade and scabbard. The 34.5 inch blade
is firm in the hilt, the hilt nicely patinated, the grips still
good (a little bulging one side), the scabbard aged but solid, the
sword sheathes very well. Further / full sized photos available
upon request. Item Ref: 677 (312).
