SOLD – 1821 French infantry officer sabre – Solingen made

For sale, a clean example of the 1821 infantry officer sabre, in use from 1821 to 1845 in the French standing army, and until 1870 in the French National Guard. This sabre has probably been rehitled at some point in it’s life, and the leather on the grip was possibly changed. The blade is German made, and still shows most of the original engravings. The hilt is nicely detailed, which hints at the fact that it was probably a high quality sabre

It is in very good shape, with the grip wire missing, but which could easily be replaced. The hilt has a very slight movement to it, which can be hard to notice.

A nice sword for someone wanting an example of this model for drilling or simply to add to a collection.
