Title 1796 pattern light cavalry trooper's sabre
Nationality British
Period c 1810
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

Nice example, if somewhat overcleaned, of its type, marked 'Dawes Birmingham' at forte with the inspector's stamp of a crown over the number 6. This stamp changed its format circa 1820 to a three-part stamp which included a letter indicating where the inspection had taken place.

This sword has been professionally stripped and polished and then rebuilt, but the work has been done to a very high standard. It would moreover appear to have its original grip.
