Civil War Era English Officer's Sword from the Reign of Queen Victoria
Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a very pretty officer's sword. This is an English officer's sword from the reign of Queen Victoria. ‎She ruled England from 1837 until 1901. We know this one would date from 1852 until 1874 because of the maker's marking. This pattern is officially known as the British Pattern 1845 Infantry Officer's Sword. The brass handguard has the "VR" on the guard with the crown above. The back side of the hand guard has the fold down section that is still functional. The handle of the sword has the wire-wrapped sharkskin grip. The sword has a full length steel blade that measures 31-3/4ths inches with the entire sword being 38 inches. The blade has a gray color all over with some old pitting but nothing active. At the base of the back of the blade, it has the etched retailer's marking of the firm of George & William Almond of London of St. James Street. I found the information that G&W Almond were located in London at St. James Street from 1852 until 1874 when that location closed. The scabbard is still present. It is made of brass and leather. You can tell by the wear to the brass drag, that this sword was worn extensively. This is a fine looking sword for the price!
