This sabre is a picket weight 1822 infantry officer blade. It bears the cipher of Victoria, making it a late example of a pipe back blade, and a few faint etchings remain visible on the blade which is moderately pitted; mostly at the point. The grip is missing some of its wire and the guard has a sectioned branch. It is equipped with a leather liner inside the guard, which rarely survived. An interesting sword which could become an good restoration project.
