Description

Victorian Era British 1827 Pattern Royal Navy Officer’s Sword With Brass Basket Hilt, Post 1846 Fullered Blade & Scabbard By E&W Seagrove Portsea. Sn 17261 - 17261

The year 1827 brought about a radical change in the design of British Naval Officer’s swords. The Napoleonic stirrup hilt was replaced with a solid gilt brass half basket hilt based on the 1822 pattern Infantry Officer’s sword. Post 1846 examples have fullered blades (see page 247 of World Swords by Withers). This is a good example of the 1827 pattern British Royal Navy Officer’s Sword and Scabbard. The Sword has a single edged blade with post 1846 fullers which is 29 ¾” in length (36” overall). The blade has heavy staining consistent with age which may be hiding etched decoration. There is no visible manufacturer name on the blade but again may be present under the staining. The blade has the ordnance acceptance proof star and inlaid ‘proof’ roundel. It has the correct gilt brass lions head with mane pommel and grip strap & half basket knuckle guard with the Royal Navy Queen Victoria Crown and fouled anchor motif. One side of the guard has a small hinged folding langet which, when folded flat fastens to a pin on the throat mount of its scabbard and holds the sword securely in place. The sword’s fish skin grip with wire binding is undamaged. The sword is complete with its black leather scabbard which has gilt brass mounts and 2 hanging rings. The leather and stitching of the scabbard are intact. The lower section of the scabbard has an ornate brass mount with the name of the manufacturer (illustrated). The price includes UK delivery.
