1827 Rifle Officer's Sword by Mole

Description: A very nice example of the 1827 Rifle Officer’s sword. The blade is firm in the hilt, the wiring is intact and the shagreen is in good condition with just some minor wear evident. The steel of hilt has a lovely aged pitination overall, though with time and dedication it could be returned to its original bright finish.

The blade is in fine condition and carries minimal staining with no pitting or corrosion evident. It is etched with the royal cypher of Victoria to one side with the strung bugle of the rifle regiment to the other. The brass ‘plug’ in the ricasso carries an emblem that I have identified as that of the firm of Robert Mole of Birmingham. The opposite side is etched with the name of the outfitters Nathan of Tichbourn St London

The scabbard is in fair condition with staining overall plus the usual knocks and ding. It retains its wooden liner and the blade fits very well. Their is an area of pitting near the chape (see photo).

Provenance: None known.

Price: £345
