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.

testimonials

Bayonet arrived safely today. Thanks very much indeed, I'm very pleased with it.

Hanger arrived safe and sound 11.30ish today. Very pleased, it's as expected. Your excellent pics make all the difference in terms of confident buying over the net. As a matter of interest, the frog, which as you said is very a/f, is, as you thought, 'spot on'. On closer inspection it is a mk.1 Naval Frog, designated 'for cutlasses'. Date seems around 1860ish give or take.

By the way, I think your site is very user friendly. Seems to work much better than many and up to date, a rarity!!!
