1788 Heavy Cavalry Troopers Sword

A good 1788 type Cavalry troopers sword.

I was told by the gentleman that this sword was purchased from that it was produced for troopers of the 1st Life Guards, from a contract completed by Thomas Gill in 1789.

This would explain the presence of the Garter Star on the blade.

There is also a rack/troop number on the front of the guard. Again, this may be an indication that it is infact a troopers sword.

The sword is in good solid condition with no movement. The hilt has a globular pommel, original turned wooden grip, with replacement brass wire. Obviously not original, but appears to have been in place for some time.

The basket guard may have had a bar removed on either side to aid grip, with the lower swirling S bars still in place. No signs of cracking or damage.

35 inch single fullered blade in very good condition, showing the makers name "GILL" and the motto "Unparalleled" The Garter Star appears on both sides of the blade, along with a crowned "GR" royal cypher, and floral swags.

A very fine sword, in very good condition. And if the link to the Life Guards can be firmly established, then it could easily double in value.

Strictly over 18's only.

Princess Mary Gift Tin

A fine complete set, which has obviously always been together, but has two packs of tobacco, rather than one of cigarettes. A mistake? or perhaps swapped at the time of receipt with ones of his pals?

Either way, and interesting and wholly original ensemble, complete with Christmas card, photograph and bullet pencil.
