    Victorian British 1822 Pattern Infantry Officer’s Sword By Hamburger Rogers & Co London With Post 1845 Etched Blade & Scabbard By Firmin & Sons London. Sn 17283 - 17283

    The 1822 pattern sword was a radical departure from previous designs, having a ‘gothic’ style pierced basket hilt so named after its resemblance to window shapes in gothic architecture and folding langet on one side. Pre 1845 these swords had pipe back blades. Post 1845 they were made with slightly curved fullered blades (see page 173 of World Swords by Withers & Page 159 of Robson). This good, original infantry Officer's Pattern 1822 sword has a post 1845, 32” single edged blade with part fullers (38” overall). The blade has staining consistent with age and a few nibbles to the cutting edge. The blade is faintly signed ‘Hamburger Rogers & Co 30 King Street, London’ (Hamburger Rogers & Co were at 30 King Street, Covent Garden, London from 1836 until 1917). The ricasso has the ordnance acceptance star and inlaid proof roundel. The blade is etched on both sides with stylised Royal Cypher ‘VR’ (Victoria Regina) and Queen’s Crown together with decorative panels. The gothic style voided gilt guard has stylised Royal Cypher ‘VR’ & Queen’s Crown in the centre and correct folding langet on one side. Its fish skin grip with finger grooves & copper binding is in very good condition. The sword is complete with its leather scabbard which has brass mounts and 3 brass hanging rings. The throat mount has a banner device with embossed lettering ’Firmin & Sons 153 Strand & 13 Conduit St London’. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 17283
