Title Light Dragoon officer's levee sword
Nationality British
Period c 1780
Sold
 (This item is subject to special postage, click here for more information.)

This rare sword, with a buffalo horn hilt, has an unmarked silver guard with its original silver ribbon binding. The blade measures approximately 31 inches and may have been slightly shortened. There are still fairly clear engraved details, such as GR and crown, on the blade.

These swords were worn in walking out dress in the garrison towns where the regiment was stationed as an alternative to wearing a silver smallsword and as a handy weapon should you be surprised by footpads.

There is some bruising to the base of the guard through mishandling over the years.
