1780 Horse Grenadier Guards Trooper's Sword,
In good overall condition, a rare 1780 Horse Grenadier Guards
(Household Cavalry) Trooper's Sword.
The Horse Grenadier Guards became the Life Guards in 1788, they
were and still are part of the Household Cavalry. This is a particularly
rare sword, we believe from the 1st Troop of the Horse Grenadier
Guards (now the 1st Life Guards).
The 33 3/8 Sohlingen (Solingen, Prussia) made blade is overall
good / sound for its age, some damage, etching still visible, still
firm in the hilt. Hilt with missing/ broken section, but still very
good overall. Original leather grip and twisted grip wire bindings
still in place.
Not many of these around, to say the very least. Don't hang around,
there may never be another one! Yours for £1500. Please quote
item reference number AB96. Further / full sized pictures available
upon request. Box 0139-1.18 (2.172).
