This beautiful sword is a genuine antique used by a British Infantry Officer during the Napoleonic Wars against the French. This pattern was carried between 1796 and 1822.
The sword features a spadroon type blade – meaning that is single-edged and has a deep single fuller on each side. The twin clamshell guard is in excellent condition, with the hinge still working. The wire wrapped handle is also in unusually good condition.
Sadly, the sword has lost it’s matching metal scabbard but for its age, it is overall in remarkably good condition.
