1890 Pattern British Light Cavalry Trooper's Sword, 4th Hussars, Boer War

Sales enquiries

Dated to 1893, this is an Enfield made / marked Sword, a late Victorian British cavalry trooper's sabre of the 4th Hussars, whose troopers saw action in the Boer War from 1899 onwards, so it is quite likely this sword was there.

The 34 1/2 inch blade has multiple acceptance / inspection marks, is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The steel Maltese Cross hilt is equally in very good order, as is the grip, though with some wear from use as is apparent. The steel scabbard also very good, the sword sheathes and draws very well.

A well above average example. Please quote item reference number H29. Further / large images available upon request.
