1821P Victorian British Light Cavalry Officer's
Sword & Scabbard, for sale
In good condition, an 1821 Pattern Victorian British Light Cavalry
Officer's Sword & Scabbard.
Etched to army tailors and sword cutler "McBride & Sons,
7 Charles Street, St James's London", at that address from
1857 to 1890.
The 35 7/8 inch blade, serial number 99223 to the spine, is in good
condition but has rough (minor / very small nicks) edges so has
seen some kind of "action". Blade firm in the hilt. The
hilt is good with a steady patina. The fishskin grip in good condition.
The twisted grip wire bindings have lost a couple of minor strands;
the remains do project a tiny amount out from the back piece. The
field service steel scabbard has patina but is good. The sword sheathes
and draws well.
A quality sword in above average condition. Nicely priced: £475.
