1854 Pattern Victorian British Infantry Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

Some parts excellent, some parts rusted, but overall a very nice 1854P infantry officer's sword in good condition.

The 32 1/4 inch blade is in overall good condition; some parts, thankfully the main etched parts are VGC, some parts, especially the ricasso area, are rusted. Blade firm in the hilt, the hilt retaining some hilt and in good condition; a little blue oxidation, easily cleaned if desired. The black fishskin grip is in good order, as are the twisted grip wire bindings, a couple of minor strands a little astray one side. The steel scabbard is "browned" (a treatment to brown the scabbard), so the brown you see is only a little down to rust. In good condition, the sword sheathes and draws well enough, if a little loosely, the wooden liners clearly have perished. But a very nice sword all in all.

Etched to makers "mann & Son, Late Buckmaster, Frederick Street, London". Additional / full sized images available upon request. Please quote item reference number E62 (808).
