I offer for sale a fine Victorian, British, Pattern 1845, Infantry Officer’s sword, provenance (apparently) issued to Officer Coulton of the 33rd - Duke of Wellington’s Regiment.
The P.1845 type blade is in good condition, with a lovely deep etch to it, scrolls of floral motifs and a Crowned royal cypher to Queen Victoria. The blade measures 32 ½ inches in length. The cutler’s details are etched at the blade forte – “W. Buckmaster of 3 New Burlingtons, London”. There is only the tiniest bit of movement between blade and guard, hardly detectable.
The Gothic hilt is in good overall condition, just one of the gothic arch guard bars having caught the point of a blade(?) at sometime during it’s service life.
The sword comes complete with it’s Steel scabbard, which is in good condition, with just a few minor ‘dings’ and one throat screw missing.
A good named P.1845 Infantry Officer’s sword and scabbard, warranting further research.
