Title Buff leather sword knot with braided cord
Nationality British
Period c 1820
Sold
 (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.

Just letting you know that the whistle arrived here this morning safe and sound. Your excellent packaging was still totally intact and it took me all of five minutes to break into it to see my purchase. I am very pleased, it is a great whistle.
