US Civil War Tiffany Cavalry Saber, Style of British 1822

A very nice Tiffany imported Cavalry Saber and Scabbard, with the Tiffany& Co. stamp on the ricasso. This is the style of the British 1822 Light Cavalry Saber, probably produced for Tiffany in Germany. It has a square backed blade, with a point like the British 1855 saber. The leather grip is intact, with most of the triple strand wire wrap. Dimensions: The blade is 36 inches long, and the sword overall is 43.5 inches long in the scabbard. Processing and shipping within the continental U.S. $65.00 plus 1.5% replacement cost insurance. 

Condition:

Very good overall. The leather on the grip is very good, but two loops of the wire are missing. The hilt and scabbard are dark, and the scabbard has surface rust and very minor dents. The blade is bright and in high polish, although there are a few minor spots of pitting, and the blade may have been cleaned in spots. Witherell's strives to provide as much information and photographs as possible but encourages in-person inspection by bidders.
