Napoleonic Yeomanry / Light Cavalry Officer's Pipe Back Dress Sword, Ivory Grip

Sales enquiries

A very rare version of the British 1796 pattern stirrup hilted light cavalry officer's sword. This one has a straight 29 3/4 inch pipe backed blade which means it is a dress sword circa 1815. It would either have been worn by a light cavalry or yeomanry cavalry officer, probably during the Napoleonic Wars.

The blade has some damage to it, but we do not believe this could be battle damage. It is slim and very elegant blade, firm in the hilt. The hilt is in very good condition, the ivory grip also very good (some slight losses, many little cracks as you should expect with ivory left to the air for 200 years or so. A lovely looking sword on top of its rarity makes this a very good investment at only £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference I30 (1085). Further / full sized images available upon request.
