The 29 1/2 inch blade, well etched with crossed sabre and baton emblems for a general officer, plus Victorian royal cypher and scrolls, is in very good condition for its age. The blade is firm in the hilt. The ivory grip sections are good except for one small loss as is so common with antique ivory, but the rest is good and free from apparent cracking, etc. The grip rosettes so often lost are present and good. The original crimson and gold sword knot is aged and worn but attractive and sound. The steel scabbard indicating a field officer is good, though a little tarnished. The sabre sheathes and draws well.

This is a lovely example and a great investment. Please quote item reference F87 (922). Further / full sized images are available upon request.
