SKU: 8090 Category:

Excellent and complete example of a British Napoleonic 1796 Pattern Cavalry Officer’s Sword (Dress).  With typical gilt-brass boat-shell hilt with silver twistwire to the grip.  Unusually, there is etching to the single-fullered blade which includes royal crown, victory wreaths and royal coat of arms – most examples seen feature plain blades.  Blade in good condition with smooth patina.  Comes with rarely seen leather and brass-mounted scabbard.  Blade length is 32 inches (39 inches overall).
