1821 Patt Fine Victorian British Light Cavalry Officer's Sword, Initialed, Family Crest

Sales enquiries

A well above average example of the 1821P light cavalry officer's sword, owner's initials "J C R" and family crest to the blade (research the crest and you will quite likely identify the original owner). Good, strong, deep Victorian etching.

The superb 32 1/3 inch blade is in very good condition and has the magical original sharpening evident with a few nicks to the forward cutting edge of the blade; we do not think this sword has been abused at a later date but rather has seen some period action.

The blade is firm in the hilt, the hilt with a good patina throughout, the fishskin grip aged and worn in places, but still very good, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The steel scabbard with equal patina to the hilt. The sword sheathes and draws well, the scabbard just holds the sword in place when inverted.

A lovely sword with some potential history and original owner details to research. Further / full sized images upon request. Please quote item reference number E95 (850)
