1827 Pattern British Rifle Regiment Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

Quite a stunning example in its bright polished steel scabbard, the blade etching still very much clear.

The 32 1/2 inch blade is nicely etched with VR (Victorian) cypher and slung powder horn denoting use by a rifle regiment officer. Some rust spots / small patches. No maker's name to the blade so almost certainly retailed through a smaller outfitters. The steel hilt is in lovely condition and very well matches the scabbard; a stunning display piece. The fishskin grip is good though it has lost some of its twisted wire grip binding strands. Sheathes and draws quite nicely into its bright steel scabbard; some staining marks which all should come out with a good metal polish

A great price for such a nice sword. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number C49 - Box 687-1m.
