Title Buff leather sword knot with braided cord
Nationality British
Period c 1820
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

I think this is the undress sword knot for the 1822 pattern Light Cavalry sword (judging from old portraits) and was worn through the early years of use of this sword. By the time of the Crimea, a similar knot was used, but with a flat leather strap instead of the braided cord.

This knot has been given a coat of whiting at some point, quite possibly in period, as portraits show bright white knots on cavalry officers' swords of this period.

The condition is excellent for its age, but it is a little frayed in one place.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

Wanted to let you know the items arrived today. Great job on the packing. Too often I buy very expensive and irreplaceable items from the UK and they get sent barely packed to protect them from the various postal services - appreciate you going the extra mile to insure it arrived in the shape it left. Thanks again, look forward to doing business with you in the future. Items were very nice, exactly as offered.
