SKU: 6776 Category:

An interesting British Napoleonic 1796 Pattern Cavalry Trooper’s Sword.  Of typical form with stirrup hilt and part-leather covered grip.  It appears that during its service life the blade has been broken in two (likely to have happened during combat) and it has been repaired with a substantial metal plate to both sides.  Has been done very well so am assuming that it is a period repair – has made it robust again although am not sure how it would have faired again in battle.  Comes with its original heavy steel scabbard.  Maker stamped to the blade spine – Dawes Birmingham – also inspector’s stamp to ricasso.  Unusual piece.  Blade length is 32 inches (38 inches overall).
