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 upon request.
