Sales enquiries

An impressive Napoleonic British light cavalry officer's sabre with post 1801 British Royal Coat of Arms and Georgian cypher. The blade with a single nick to the very forward cutting edge. The ivory grip showing the original officer owner was high ranking and standing.

The 29 3/8 inch blade is worn but the etching is still clear and is firm in the hilt. The gilt brass stirrup hilt is in very good condition. The ivory grip has fine age cracks and a small piece chipped out under the pommel, plus various small chips especially where the grip meets and goes under the back piece. But it is a solid piece of ivory and is very impressive under the lion's head pommel. The twisted grip wire bindings are good. The leather and brass fittings scabbard has seen the test of time and is way better than most. The top fitting has lost its frog stud / button (early swords had frog studs and suspension loops). The sword sheathes and draws well.

A really great looking sabre in above average condition. A snip at £1000. Please quote item reference AE36. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 0834-1m (2.273).
