1796 Patt. British Heavy Cavalry Officer's Dress Sword

Sales enquiries

With the ubiquitous "G G" markings to the ricasso and feint remains of the once fine etching to the blade, this is an authentic 1796P heavy cavalry officer's dress sword with boat shell hilt.

The 31 1/4 inch blade has patina and some light pitting, but is generally sound and firm in the hilt. The hilt retains some gilt; there are signs of an earlier repair to the join between the boat shell section and the rest of the hilt. The twisted silver wire grip is in good condition, though with some movement against the wooden base (unseen, within); probably could be glued to firmness.

A rare sword at a good price. Further / full sized images upon request. Please quote item reference number E10 (818).
