British 1827 Pattern Naval Officer’s Sword

A very impressive and substantial British 1827 Pattern Naval Officer's Sword.  This is one of the largest examples of an 1827 Pattern Naval Officer's Sword that I have come across in many years and this is due to the enormous pipe-backed and quillpoint blade that would have made this a devastating fighting officer's sword.  This is a very early example and probably dates to no later than 1830 as it exhibits a plain blade which is symptomatic of these early pattern blades.  The hilt has a finely detailed lionshead pommel and the grip is made from sharkskin and bound with brass twistwire.  The half basket hilt has an embossed crown and anchor motif and it has a folding guard.  The blade has dark age staining in places commensurate with its age.  Both hilt and blade are rock solid with no movement.  This would make a great display piece for the collector of British naval officers' swords.  Blade length is 30.5 inches (36 inches overall).
