Sales enquiries

This is a much rarer sword than the normal Household Cavalry trooper's sword. The same size hilt but with a smaller / slimmer plain standard cavalry blade. This one with date stamps to the inside of the hilt for April 1901, January 1908, and February 1909; this sword would have been at the coronation and then funeral processions for King Edward 7th, plus the coronation procession for King George 5th.

The 32 inch plain blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt very good, a small plating loss patch and some light speckling on the inside. The fishskin grip and twisted grip wire bindings are great. The scabbard with a dappled patina effect but very good and sound. The sword sheaths and draws well.

This is a Household Cavalry sword pattern that rarely comes available on the market. So, if you collect Household Cavalry swords, you almost certainly do not have one already and therefore should snap it up before the next collector does. A good buy at £? (too late, now sold). Further pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number D09 (722)
