French 1816 Model Light Cavalry Trooper's
Sabre, dated 1829, Sold
In very good condition, a French 1816 Model Light Cavalry Trooper's
Sabre with pipe back blade, dated 1829.
Scarce sword, lovely pipe backed blade, Klingenthal made, dated
"gbre" (November) 1829.
The very impressive 36 1/2 inch blade is in very good condition,
some light pitting / patina to the point end (not much), firm in
the hilt. The hilt overall very good. Leather grip in very good
condition and with original twisted grip wire bindings intact. The
heavy steel scabbard in very good condition, some patina patches
but not much / many. The sword sheathes and draws well.
Great example of a scarce sword. Snap it up at only £? (too
late, now sold). Please quote item reference number Q75. Further
/ full sized pictures available upon request.
