Sales enquiries

This is a cracking 1821P Victorian British light cavalry officer's sabre. The blade is the 1845 version, but the etching is Georgian / early Victorian, so we believe the sword was actually made in 1845.

VR Cypher

Andrews 9 Pall Mall London

The impressive 35 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition, the etching still very crisp. The blade was period sharpened, clearly done by Andrews (not in the field) as it is so well done and does not spoil the look of the blade as so many sharpenings have. The blade is firm in the hilt, the steel hilt also very good. The fishskin grip with some wear, but not too much; the associated twisted grip wire bindings are very good. The steel field service scabbard is in very good condition. The sword sheathes and draws very well.

This is a well above average example and worth every penny. Please quote item reference number H28 (999). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
