1796 Pattern British Light Cavalry Trooper's Sabre, Woolley & Deakin

Sales enquiries

Marked "Woolley & Deakin" to the blade spine and also faintly inscribed to the scabbard. The 1796P has no inspection marks, so is either a private purchase (campaign sword) or regimental purchase for an NCO. The forward cutting edge has tell tale period nicks.

The 32 1/4 inch blade is in overall good condition, except for period nicks. The blade is loose in the hilt (or rather the hilt is a little loose) with a gap showing a small section of the tang, though the sword does not like it has been reseated (by examination of the tang finale / pommel). The leather has gone from several places on the grip and there is a section of grip base missing from under the pommel. The steel scabbard is aged but sound. The sword sheathes and draws a tad loosely.

An iconic Napoleonic sword, quite possibly if not likely one that saw action. Yours for £800. Please quote item reference P32. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 0215-1m (2.687).
