Circa 1830 Rare Brass Hilt / Grip 1821P Heavy Cavalry Sergeant's Pipe Back Sabre

Sales enquiries

So rare that we have never come across one before. This is an 1821 pattern British heavy cavalry officer's sabre but with a brass grip for a sergeant, the guard is also brass. If you are looking for a rare one-off, no-one else has one sword, this is probably the one for you.

Probably 1830 (late Georgian) based solely on the pipe-back blade and the fact there were a number of brass gripped sergeants swords for other services around that time. It looks like it has endured some use (handling).

The 80cm slightly curved blade is in good condition except for some wear at the point end (from where it had been sharpened) and a nick to the cutting edge of the forward section, and is firm in the hilt. The hilt is in good shape, the grip equally. The sword sheathes and draws very well. Again, an exceptionally rare sword and therefore the price is a very good investment. Further / large images available upon request. Please quote item reference number E13 - (782).
