1853 Patt Kirschbaum made British Cavalry
Trooper's Sword, sold
In very good condition, a 1853P Kirschbaum (Solingen) made British
Cavalry Trooper's Sword.
The Knights head Trademark of W. R. Kirschbaum & Cie was used
from 1862, so this sword was made, accepted (by the British) and
then was made one or two years later when the 1864P came into service.
This is the reason it is authentic and yet in such good condition.
Apart from the maker's and acceptance mark (and spine "B"
bend test mark), there are no other markings, no regimental markings,
so it never made it to a regiment; hence the reason it is authentic
yet in such great condition.
The 35 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm in the
hilt. The hilt / guard and scabbard have an even patina with slight
pitting. The grip is in very good condition. The sword sheathes
and draws very well.
A truly great example of an iconic cavalry sword, and yours for
just £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference
number AB07 (0106). Further / full sized pictures available upon
