An excellent example of a British 1822 Pattern Infantry Officer’s Sword. This is an early Victorian (c.1840) infantry officer’s sword and is of levee style meaning that it has a slim blade that would have been suitable for dress purposes e.g. regimental balls and social occasions. The sword comprises a gilt brass Gothic Hilt with the royal cypher of Queen Victoria (1837-1901) inset in cartouche. The grip retains all the original fishskin covering and silver twistwire. The blade is of pipe back form with a ribbed spine meant to give the blade extra strength. The blade is etched with the royal cypher and “VR” of Queen Victoria, victory laurel and foliage. There is a faint maker/retailer mark of __ etched to the blade forte. This fine sword comes complete with its original leather and gilt brass mounted scabbard. Condition is very good throughout. Blade length is 32 inches (37 inches overall).
