An 18th C British Officers cavalry saber and original scabbard. The classically curved blade has gold fire gilt brass fittings and blued panels with gilt armorial and Georgian cypher engraving. The lions head pommel hilt crowns a dark wood or gutta-percha grip with a finely checkered surface. The blade has several small areas of dark rust as shown in the accompanying images, there is, in addition, some surface abrasion from age and use but it is otherwise sound and with a good tip. The blued panels are worn but attractive and both the Georgian Cypher and British Coat of Arms are clearly portrayed in the central of each opposing panel. The leather scabbard has brass fire gilt mounts with approximately 50% of the original finish. The scabbard leather is dry and has one break in the upper back area. A very good example of a Napoleonic era British Cavalry Saber. Late 18th C. Overall length 36", blade 29".
