    Victorian, British Pattern 1827 Canarvonshire Volunteer Rifles Officer's Sword With Queen’s Crown Etched Blade By Ollivier & Brown London ' & Scabbard. Sn 14894:30 - 14894:30

    Originally raised as the King’s Royal Rifle Corps in 1755, the Rifle Brigade was officially formed in 1800. Initially Officer’s carried a lighter version of the 1796 pattern Light cavalry sabre, later adopting the 1803 pattern Infantry Officer’s Sword with strung bugle motif placed within the knuckle bow. The Regiment, always renowned for its individuality both in uniform and tactics, it was no wonder that they eventually gained their own distinctive pattern of sword. The 1827 pattern is defined by an all steel hilt coupled with the replacement of the usual Royal Cypher with a strung bugle and Queen’s Crown in the hilt .This is a very good, original example 1827 Pattern Sword with Scabbard. It has a 32 ¾” long elegantly curved blade with fullers (38 ½”overall). The blade has just light staining consistent with age and is etched on both sides with foliate panels including Queen’s crown with Royal cypher ‘VR’ (Victoria Regina) on one side and Queen’s Crown with Rifle Brigade badge & ‘Canarvonshire Volunteer Rifles’ on the reverse. It also has the ordnance acceptance star with inlaid roundel at the ricasso on one side together with initials ‘F.H’ (either an inspection mark or initials of the Victorian Officer who owned this sword). The reverse has manufacturer detail ''Ollivier & Brown, Sackville St., London''. It has a voided knuckle guard with the correct Rifle Brigade Queen’s crown with strung bugle motif, curved stepped pommel with ball end and wire bound grooved wood grip (the original fish skin handle covering is absent). It is complete with steel scabbard with 2 hanging rings. The scabbard has staining consistent with age and a few small dents. The price includes UK delivery. Sn 14894:30
