1857 Pattern Scottish Field Officer's Sword EVII

Description This is a fine example of this very attractive pattern of sword. The double-fullered blade is exceptionally clean with no marks or blemishes; it is etched with thistles, the light infantry strung bugle and the cypher of Edward VII. The hilt with its pierced steel guard is also in very good condition; the shagreen is undamaged, with just some slight wear present, and the wiring is present and correct. I have been unable to identify the maker, though it might be Andersons of Edinburgh.

The accompanying scabbard is likewise in good condition; it is complete and has the ball chape that is a characteristic of Scottish swords. There are a few areas of light corrosion in some areas, though no pitting of the metal, and the original plating is still largely evident.

Provenance None known.
