SWORDS FOR SALE

1822 Pattern Pipe-backed Infantry Officer's Sword by Deakin GR IV

Description: A good quality example of one of the few such swords that would have been made between the date of the adoption of this sword pattern in 1822 and the accession of William IV in 1830.

The shagreen and wiring to the hilt is present and undamaged, though there is some slight movement of the blade in the hilt. The guard retains some traces of its original gilding. The blade is rubbed, but the original etching, including the royal cipher for GRIV, trophies of arms and the makers mark, are still clearly visible.

The iron scabbard is in good order, though the wooden liner has gone, and is complete and free from damage.

Provenance: None known, though the metal scabbard would indicate that it was carried by an adjutant.

Price: Final sale price witheld
