**NAPOLEONIC WARS ERA**Georgian British 1796 Pattern Officer's Quality Light Cavalry Sabre With Etched Blade & Cast Steel Scabbard By Woolley & Co Birmingham. Sn 21884 - 21884
Woolley of Birmingham produced their 1796 pattern sabres especially for the looming 100 Days War in March and April 1815, after the Congress of Vienna declared Napoleon an outlaw after his escape from his first exile to the Elba, and the Allies mobilised their armies accordingly. This is an original British 1796 Pattern Officer's Quality Light Cavalry Sabre with Scabbard by Woolley & Co Birmingham. These Sabres were primarily used by British Light Dragoons and Hussars during the Napoleonic Wars. The blade is remembered today as one of the best of its time and has been described as the finest cutting sword ever manufactured in quantity. Officers of the famous 95th Rifles, Light Infantry Regiments and the "flank" Companies of Line Regiments adopted these Swords (The Hit Napoleonic War, Book & TV series Sharpe's Rifles featured this pattern of Sword). Pattern 1796 Sabres were used at The Battle of Waterloo 1815. This example has a single edged, fullered 32 ½” Sabre blade (37 ½” overall). The blade has some staining consistent with age but no rust and the cutting edge has no nicks. Both sides of the blade have etched Banners & Arms, together with heraldic arms of Great Britain King’s Crown & Royal Cypher ‘GR’ (George Rex). There are no visible maker marks on the sword. Its cross guard with rounded langets, knuckle guard, pommel and leather covered ribbed grip with wire binding are in nice condition. The wire binding is tight and intact. The Sabre is complete with its original steel scabbard with 2 hanging rings. The scabbard has even patina with no cracks and just a few small dents to be expected. The scabbard has an engraved roundel with the maker’s name ‘Woolley & Co Birmingham’ above engraved ‘Cast Steel’. The price for this Napoleonic Wars Era Sword & Scabbard includes UK delivery.
