A large British Napoleonic Dragoon Trooper's Sword. This sword has a brass stirrup hilt with a grip composed of fishskin and brass twistwire - all of the original fishskin is still present. The blade is straight and substantial and the length probably indicates use by a heavy cavalry trooper. The blade is plain and double-edged towards the point. This is not an official regulation pattern although the hilt is based on the 1796 Pattern Light Cavalry Trooper's Sword.
Hilt and blade rock solid
It could even be pre-1796 and one of the many differing types that were used by cavalry regiments before standardisation came into force. Condition of the sword is good overall - some losses to the metal on the blade. Both the hilt and the blade are rock solid and have never been removed and re-seated. Blade length is 32 inches (37 inches overall).
