Title Infantry officer's silver bullion sword knot, 1822 pattern
Nationality British
Period c 1822-57
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This is a rather grubby example of what is now quite a hard sword knot to find. They were worn by the Foot Guards and infantry of the line throughout the second quarter of the 19th century right up to and including the Indian Mutiny. They would also have been worn by East India Company officers in the same era.

It is very stained and tarnished with age; however, structurally it is complete, though there is a little wear at the top of the knot where it joins the ribbon, with the underlying paper structure showing through the bullion.

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

Picked up the dirk this morning and actually waited until I got back home before unwrapping the package. It really exceeded my expectations...whilst the photos were good, to see and feel it in three dimensions was very exciting. A beatutful piece Chris, and worth the wait.
