Sold Item Notice

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 side.

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. What a buy! Only £xxx (too latye, now sold - original sales price divulged for small fee). Please quote item reference H94 (1031). Further / full sized images available upon request.
