1912P WW1 British Cavalry Officer's Sword,
In good condition, a WW1 era British cavalry officer's sword that
speaks of having been worn mounted during the war.
An authentic 1912 pattern British cavalry officer's sword with
the typical distinctive black faux fishskin grip. This sword speaks
of having been worn into battle with the officer mounted by token
of the sword knot, which has been period attached to the front of
the scabbard's suspension frog.
The 34 5/8 etched blade is in good condition, no maker's mark which
may be an indication the sword is circa 1917. Blade firm in the
hilt. The hilt is good, the inside of the bowl guard though with
clear aging and some rust. The regulation black grip is worn but
good, the grip wire still present and correct. The leather field
scabbard with age but still good. The sword sheathes and draws well.
A lovely sword and a certain investment. Please quote item reference
number O09 (1340). Further / full sized pictures available upon
