Product Description

A fine example of an 1822 Pattern cavalry sword that bears, on the basket, not the Royal Cypher, but the cross baton and sword, that denotes a General’s rank.

It can also be worn by an officer of the General’s staff. The sword is definitely still a fighting weapon, rather than a decoration for the parade ground. It has a piped back blade and is has acid etched decoration on both sides of the blade. There is the George IV (1820-1830) cypher surmounted by the crown, the crossed baton and sword in a laurel wreath, and the maker’s details ‘PROSSER Manufacturer to the KING – London’. The basket is standard in design in gilded bronze and the handle is shagreen leather with twisted wire binding. There is a sword knot twisted around the knuckle guard. The scabbard is in polished brass. The condition is very good.

The 1822 British Cavalry sword was brought in after the experiences of the Napoleonic Wars and instituted by George IV. It was continued in the first half of the Victorian era.

Size: 99.5 cm (39 1/8 inches)
