A good, untouched 1821 Pattern Light Cavalry Officers Sword by Henry Wilkinson.

This example is unusual, in having a plain fighting blade, bearing only the Wilkinson Proof slug and address markings to either ricasso, and the etched initials of the original owner. These are overlaid "F.T.M."

The Wilkinson ledger page shows the blade was proved on the 22nd January 1876. The purchasers name appears to be F.T. Miles or possibly Mills. However, there is an F.T. Mills serving with the 18th Hussars, listed as serving as ADC to Sir Patrick MacDougall.

Further research required.

Generally good condition overall, minor loss to the shagreen grip. Hilt tight to the blade. Housed in its original steel scabbard with twin hanging rings.

Strictly over 18's only. Photo ID will be required before this item can be dispatched.
