    This is an original 1895 pattern officer’s sword. These swords were a great improvement on previous patterns with better protection to the hand through its ¾ basket hilt. !895 pattern sword guards were without the turned down edge of the 1897 pattern (see page 166 figures 157 and 158 of Swords of the British Army by Robson). The sword has a 32” single edged blade with partial fullers. The blade has its original hilt washer. The ricasso is marked by the manufacturer ‘Firmino & Sons 153 Strand’ (London). The reverse has the ordnance acceptance ‘proof’ star and roundel. Both sides of the blade have etched panels featuring foliate devices, Queen’s crown ‘VR’ (Victoria Regina). It also has the strung bugle device of the Rifle brigade. It has the correct ¾ bowl guard voided with foliate design and ‘Queen’s Crown VR’. The edge of the 1895 pattern guard is correctly straight. The guard is fitted with buff cord and acorn knot. It has the correct fish skin grip with wire binding which is intact. The sword is complete with its steel scabbard which has even patina and 2 hanging rings. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 17136:9
