Sales enquiries

This is a lovely rare example of an early Victorian pipe-back Rifle Brigade officer's sword, shown to have been made by Cripps of London which dates it from 1837 to 1845. The blade etching is still very crisp.

Very good condition period sharpened 32 inch tablet form etched blade bearing the slung powder horn for a rifle regiment one side, and "Rifle Brigade" with a "3" (denoting brigade or battalion) plus the maker's name the other. Blade is form in the hilt, the steel hilt in very good order with the slung powder horn under Victorian style Georgian crown in the cartouche. The leather grip shows this sword was built for use, not show, is in good order though a little worn, the twisted wire bindings also good. The steel scabbard with a kink (straightened) and few small dings in overall good order; the sword sheathes and draws well. A rare sword and well worth the price. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Please quote item reference number D26 (695).
