Rare 1821 Pattern East India Company Cavalry
Trooper's Sword, Sold
In very good condition, a superbly made rare 1821 Pattern East
India Company Cavalry Trooper's Sword, Pensioner & Sons of Kotli
Loharan East (Punjab), circa 1850.
A stunning as it is rare 1821 Pattern East India Company Cavalry
Trooper's Sword. Marked to "J D Pensioner & Sons"
one side of the ricasso, "Kotli
Loharan E"(ast) to the obverse, the town of Kotli Loharan
East was created by the British East India Company for arms and
armaments production. More known for their Nepalese kukris, J D
Pensioner & Sons also made superb swords like this for the EIC.
The quality 33 1/4 inch blade is in very good condition and firm
in the hilt. The hilt is in very good shape and appears to be more
chemically camouflage browned than patinated. The hardwood grip
is exceptional, a great piece of workmanship and in great condition.
The original leather scabbard is equally very good. The sword sheathes
and draws well.
Look, even if you could find and buy another of these, it is wholly
unlikely you would ever find one in such exceptional condition;
this truly is a museum grade / worthy item. Don't hang around, seriously
under priced at £? (too late, now sold), really. Please quote
item reference S28 (0613). Further / full sized images available
