1821P British Light Cavalry Officer's Campaign Sword / Sabre

Sales enquiries

A really well made cavalry officer's sword with the earlier wide flared 3 bar guard (later versions were much less spaced to offer greater hand protection). There are no maker's or other marks on this sword, though it is clearly British made, and very well done so too. It was quite common for cavalry officers to have a dress and undress (campaign) sword. The complete lack of markings virtually rules out the other options (NCO's sword, sabre sold to the US).

The impressive 35 1/4 inch plain period sharpened blade is in very good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt / steel guard a pleasing brown, most likely period chemically browned, and in good condition. The fishskin grip with associated twisted grip wire bindings are in very good order. The steel scabbard is very sound but with a kink / fold. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A truly lovely sword. Please quote item reference I97 (1106). Further / large images available upon request.
