1821P Victorian British Light Cavalry Officer's
In very good overall condition, an early Victorian British light
cavalry officer's pipe back sword.
Circa 1837 to 1845 (when pipe back blades were in use), these early
Victorian light cavalry officer's sword are so much more appealing
than the later "fullered" blade swords, not just because
of the blade design, but also because the hilt tend to have much
wider flared bar guards (unfortunately the earlier hilts look nicer
but allowed an opponents sword to penetrate the hilt). OK, the tablet
style etching is feint from wear, but still clear, especially one
The 34 1/4 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt.
The hilt also very good, as are the fishskin grip and associated
twisted grip wire bindings (one small strand on one side slightly
astray). Complete with leather field scabbard, most likely a replacement,
also in good order. The sword sheathes and draws well.
A truly lovely looking sword and in well above average example.
