SOLD -1829 French Horse Artillery Officer Sabre

This is a rare variant of the 1829 type for horse artillery officers. While the 1829 was the regulation pattern for the horse artilleyr trooper, the officers technically had to carry the1822 light cavalry sabre, but many chose this non regulation type which imitated the 1829, with a lightened blade and decorated hilt.

But what makes this one so rare is the presence of a rooster on the removable pommel cap. These are very rarely seen due to the short duration of the Second Republic.

The sabre is in excellent shape, with some very minimal and sparse pitting on the blade. It was ade by Coulaux in Klingenthal, between 1848 and 1822. It does not have a scabbard.
