British Highland Field Officer’s Sword, Late 19th Century

A fantastic robust-bladed example of a Highland field officer’s sword, by Mole of Birmingham. Highland officers of Major and higher rank were permitted to wear these special Scinde Cavalry scroll hilts on their broadsword blades, but being that this was a pattern only for Field Rank officers of Highland regiments, these swords do not come around often. Additionally, this is a Victorian example (most surviving ones are George V) and given the straight fully-chequered 1895 pattern backstrap, must date to 1895-1901.
