Description

Largest selection of genuine antique weapons for sale in UK. See our website andrewbottomley.com. Ref 8687. A scarce Rev War Era Cavalry Officer's sword circa 1760-1780. Half basket guard with 4 main bars. Large ovoid pommel and with its original wooden grip. The 36 inch blade is very interesting as it has a clear motto to one side "DIEU * L' HONNEUR * ET * MON * ROI". the other side also inscribed but not quite as clearly defined.- "COMPAGNIER ROUGES D' OFFICIERS". the last word of the inscription is not at all clear but we believe it is "officiers". In very good condition. This type of sword was carried by both the British and French and is of a style known to have been used during the American Revolutionary war / War of Independence circa 1775-1783. Overall length 43 inches. If you wish to purchase this item please visit our website andrewbottomley.com where you can pay by credit/debit card or bank transfer at no extra charge. Established 1968.
