1822P Victorian British East India Company
Army Officer's Sword, Sold
In good overall but aged condition, a scarce 1822P Victorian British
East India Company army officer's sword.
Scarce to find a pipe-back (pre-1845) model, scarcer as this one
comes with part of the original hanger with twin lions for the East
The 31 blade is in overall good condition but with some small period
nicks to the cutting edge. Blade firm in the hilt. The brass hilt
is bent in several places with a couple of small half breaks (not
fully cracked across) on the bars. Folding section works but is
worn and with some bending. Grip very aged and worn, some small
missing patches, but overall good. Twisted grip wire bindings aged
but good. The (senior officer) brass scabbard is in aged but good
condition. The sword is a bit loose in the scabbard.
Aged but scarce. Yours for £? (too late, now sold). Please
