Victorian British Rifle Volunteer Regiment
Officer's Sword, Sold
In good condition, an 1827 pattern Victorian Rifle Volunteer Regiment
A nice example with the much scarcer leather and steel fittings
scabbard type, making this a very distinctive sword.
The 32 1/8 inch blade is in good condition and the etching still
crisp and clear, some small rust spots but not too many. The blade
is firm in the hilt. The steel hilt with some age / staining (can
be cleaned), but still in good condition. The fishskin grip and
twisted grip wire bindings are very good. The scabbard is a nice
example of the leather and steel fittings type; very landed gentry.
The sword sheathes and draws well.
A great buy at only £xxx (too latye, now sold, but we will
divulge the original sales price for a small fee). Please quote
item reference number J01 (1120). Further / full sized pictures
available upon request.
