1845P Picquet British Infantry Officer's
In good condition, a 1845P Picquet British Infantry Officer's
"Picquet / levee" means a light weight dress sword. This
one has a brass scabbard, so it was once carried by an adjutant
or other senior officer. Etched to quality society retailer Morgan
The 32 1/4 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt.
The brass hilt is a little deformed (normal) but in good order.
The fishskin grip is a little worn but in overall very good condition
for its age, as are the twisted grip wire bindings. The folding
guard section works well. The brass scabbard has some bending and
dings but is overall very good. The sword sheathes and draws well.
Very nice example at a very nice price, just £? (too late,
now sold). Please quote item reference R76 (0551). Further / full
sized images available upon request.
