Georgian Era 'Military Outfitter’s Sample' Miniature British 1796 Pattern Light Cavalry Officer’s Sword & Scabbard. Sn 18123:1 - 18123:1

The Pattern 1796 Light Cavalry Sabre was used primarily by British Light Dragoons and Hussars during the Napoleonic Wars (see page 77 of World Swords by Withers). The blade is remembered today as one of the best of its time and has been described as the finest cutting sword ever manufactured in quantity. Officers of the famous 95th Rifles, Light Infantry Regiments and the "flank" Companies of Line Regiments adopted these Swords. This piece is most likely a sample piece made provided by sword manufacturer’s to Military Outfitters in the Georgian era to advertise their full size weapons. It is in as found & un-messed with condition. The sword measures just 22” overall and the fullered curved 18 ¾” sabre blade is etched on both sides with foliate panels. There are no visible date or manufacturer marks. The brass guard with knuckle bow and langets is typical 1796 pattern. The original leather and wire gilt binding of the wood grip is tired and worn. Some sections of wire binding are absent. Its original steel scabbard has some minor dents but no cracks or splits. The scabbard has 2 brass hanging ring mounts with 2 brass or German Silver hanging rings attached. The price for this unusual piece worthy of further research includes UK delivery. Sn 18123:1
