    ~ Circa 1820-21 Blue & Gilt Infantry Officers Sword 1796 Pattern ~


    This is a 1796 Pattern sword with a blue & gilt spadroon blade, central fuller and a single edge. The bluing is on the upper third of the blade.

    On one side of the blade there is the coat of arms used by George IV and William IV between 1816 and 1837, as well as a floral pattern. On the other side of the blade are the letters “GR” beneath a royal crown, the royal cipher for George IV, as well as a similar floral pattern and a pair of crossed banners within a ring which is possibly a regimental badge.

    The majority of the hilt is gilt brass with a knucklebow, vestigial quillon and a twin-shell guard. The inner guard is hinged to allow the sword to sit against the body more comfortably. The pommel is urn shaped and the grip is of silver wire.

    The sword comes in a brown leather scabbard with a brass chape and suspension ring.

    ~ Dimensions ~

    The blade is 32 inches (81.5cm) long and the overall length of the sword is 38.5 inches (98 cm.)

    The total length when in the scabbard is 38.7 inches (98.3 cm.)

    The cross-guard has a width of 5 (12.5 cm) from the quillon to knucklebow and the twin shellguard has an approximate diameter of 3.7 inches (9.5 cm.)

    The total weight is 0.82 kg.

    ~ Condition ~

    The gilt on the blade has nearly completely been worn away and the blue has also worn extensively. There is a small amount of rust on the ricasso and forte.

    The guard and grip are excellent.

    The leather scabbard is rather worn and there is no locket meaning it does not cover the entirety of the blade.

    There is a horizontal tear on one side that is roughly two thirds of the way down from the mouth of the scabbard and another tear just below the suspension ring. There is a black finish on the leather is extensively worn away.

    ~ Postage ~

    UK postage is £18 or it can be collected from our shop in Portsmouth Historic Dockyard.
