Sales enquiries

One of the best 1892 pattern household cavalry trooper swords you can hope to find. Dated 1947 with "L86" to the scabbard. Almost certainly therefore this sword was present at the state funeral of King George VI and also the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II.

The 34 1/2 inch plain fullered blade is in very good condition, with various acceptance etc. marks, and is firm in the hilt. The plated steel hilt is in very good condition, the fishskin grip is worn as to be expected, the twisted grip wire bindings are all present and correct. The leather hilt liner and knot a little dry and aged, but basically very good. The scabbard in very good condition. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

What a lovely sword and display piece. Full sized / additional photos available upon request. Please quote item reference number D08 (713).
