SW549 - 1832 Pattern Royal Horse Guards Dress Officer's Sword


The royal horse guard, initially raised as a cuirassier regiment, was one of the most famous figthing units of the british army at the beginning of the 19th cent.

In the height of decadence in British military fashion, the Royal Horse Guards took sword ornamentation to a whole new level with this sword pattern. Like in other dress regulation items at this time, European influences are prevalent throughout its construction from the French pommel and back strap to the Germanic-like guard and well-etched 99cm blade.

Length 114 cm, blade's length 99cm
