Description

WW1 Era British George V 1845 / 1854 Pattern Infantry Officer’s Sword With Etched Blade Numbered 1301.5, Ordnance Roundel Inlaid To ‘James Howarth’, Scabbard, Leather Field Combat Cover & Frog. Sn 14442 - 14442

The 1845/54 pattern sword was the successor to the 1822 pattern, the main change being the folding langet of the Pattern 1822 being removed (see page 175 of World Swords by Withers). This original infantry Officer's Pattern 1845 / 54 sword has a 32 ½” single edged blade with part fullers (39" overall). The blade is undamaged with just light areas of staining consistent with age. There are no visible manufacturer’s marks on the blade but the back of the blade is numbered ‘1301.5’ which may, with further research assist to identify the manufacturer. The ricasso has the ordnance acceptance star and inlaid roundel. The blade is fitted with original hilt washer and etched on both sides with stylised Royal Cypher and Crown together with decorative panels on both sides. The voided brass bowl guard has stylised Royal Cypher ‘GR’ (GeorgeRex) & King’s Crown in the centre. It has brass stepped round pommel with ball end. The guard is contemporarily engraved ‘James Howorth’ most likely the name of the Officer who owned this sword. It's fish skin grip with finger grooves & gilt binding is in superb condition. The sword is complete with its leather covered wood scabbard with German silver insert at the mouth. The scabbard is fitted with original leather frog with 2 hanging straps, brass buckles and brass stud. All leather and stitching of the scabbard & frog are clean & intact. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14442
