Mid 19C Reeves Birmingham Victorian British Rifle Volunteer Officer's Sword

Sales enquiries

Marked to the ricasso, "Reeves Maker Toledo Works Birmingham", which means the sword was probably made circa 1859 when the Rifle Volunteer movement came about (in response to fears of another war with France). The blade is absolutely superb and in very good condition.




The 32 1/2 inch blade is virtually as new and firm in the hilt. The hilt good but some age. Grip with a couple of small moth holes; grip wire good. Scabbard with pitting, now cleaned bright. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A truly great sword with exceptional etching to the blade. Under-priced at £500. Please quote item reference V26. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0970-101x19x17 (1.829).
