Rare British C.1780's British Army Scottish/english Infantry Officer's Sword:
$1,195


This C.1780's British Army Scottish/English Infantry Officer's Sword is highly unusual and quite rare. I have only seen one similar example before and it had a thistle motif inset into the forward guard. This makes me think that it is likely to be Scottish in origin as most English infantry officers (particularly after the introduction of the 1786 Pattern) tended to carry gilt brass-hilted infantry swords. In Swords of the British Army by Robson (page 174), he refers to the adoption of bead-hilted infantry dress swords by Highland infantry officers. The use of cut steel hilts seems also to have been popular within Scottish regiments. This example has a finely cut steel hilt and flattened pommel. Retains all original fishskin and silver twistwire to the grip. The blade is plain and of 1786 Pattern Infantry Officer's type. In fine condition - great dark and smooth age toning to the hilt. Light staining to the blade. Blade length is 32.5 inches (38 inches overall).
