1854 Pattern British Infantry Officer's Sword by Hobson with Owner's Initials

Sales enquiries

The etched initials are very stylized but appear to be "E M P". The blade type is pre-1892, the serial number 99349.





The 32 7/8 inch blade is in good to very good condition, some areas only "good" because of now inert removed light corrosion. Blade firm in the brass hilt. Hilt good for these attractive "gothic" hilts as brass not the strongest metal. The black fishskin grip and associated twisted wire bindings both very good. The tape repaired scabbard clearly is now in two parts; could be improved / strengthened. The sword sheathes and draws well.

A very well made and well above average sword let down only by the scabbard. Priced lo to reflect this; £375. Please quote item reference V32. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0988-101x19x17 (2.165).
