Sold Item Notice

Marked at the ricasso "J Wood Plumstead", this is either the original owner's name or an obscure outfitter who had their name placed there. In any event, this is a lovely late Victorian 1821P light cavalry officer's sword etched with lances, a rampant horse and a field artillery canon, so it may well have been owned by an officer in the Royal Horse Artillery.

The 32 1/2 inch blade is in very good order with some minor early rust spots, nothing much, and is firm in the hilt. The steel hilt like the steel scabbard has endured some light rust pitting but the patination is very even and pleasing; this is something I would leave as is, truly. The sabre sheathes and draws very well. The fishskin grip and its twisted wire ring bindings are ion very good shape. A well above average example.
