A super rare and fine British C.1832 2nd Lifeguards Officer's Dress Sword
Terrific and rarely encountered British 2nd Lifeguards Officer's dress sword with elaborately decorated brass hilt and scrolled hilt bars. Owner's name etched to top of the guard. The blade is maker marked to Andrews of Pall Mall, London. The blade also has the regimental designation and flaming grenade motif repeated to both sides. Heavily influenced by contemporary French military swords, these swords were only carried by officers of this elite British Army regiment and very few were ever produced with a very small number surviving - this is one of the rarest British regulation military swords that a collector could ever encounter.
Condition of the Sword
In good overall condition. Some small loss of fishskin to grip near ferrule and also strands of original twistwire. Detached outer hilt bar - just needs pushing back in.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 37.5 inches (44 inches overall).
