Annee XI light cavalry Sabre

We have for sale a

Annee XI light cavalry sabre by Kirschbaum and Schimmelbusch (Solingen)

This Napoleonic sabre was introduced for the French light cavalry and mounted artillery in 1803, and was known as a “Sabre Cavalerie Legere Modele AN XI” – Year 11 of the Revolutionary calendar (introduced on 22nd September 1792). This was a very successful model under a number of French regimes.  Most were made at Klingenthal.  This is a much rarer example by Kirschbaum, Schimmelbusch & Co. in Solingen – made during the period of French control of the Rhineland Confederation, 1807-1814.  Kirschbaum and Schimmelbusch are believed to have collaborated formally during the years 1807-1813.  So, this example could have been at Waterloo.

This is a formidable sword and substantial in the hand – blade and hilt are clearly robust – more substantial than, for example, the British P1796 light cavalry sword.   The flat, back edge has the inscription “Manufacture de Solingen K.S.& C.”.  This sword has its original heavy duty steel scabbard with dual ring mounts (normally unpainted – this one has received a single coat of black paint at some point, but will come off easily).

Length: 39 1/2″
Blade: a shade under 35″
Blade width: 1 3/16″
Guard: three branch in brass, with hooked quillon
Grip: wooden slabs (beech), covered in leather (this model did not have a wire wrap) and with one brass lozenge on each side of the grip (referred to by the French as half olives); clear evidence of some woodworm, but no structural damage and the grip remains strongly intact.
Scabbard: plain steel and in almost perfect order – one light ding; two hanging rings.

Weight (sword): just over 2 lb
Weight (scabbard): 1 lb 10 oz

PRICE SOLD

1821 PATTERN LIGHT CAVALRY SWORD

We have for sale a 1821 pattern light  cavalry sword in sleeper condition.

A rare trooper’s example in very good, unrestored condition.  Extra leather cover has, at some time in the distant past, been shrink-wrapped over the existing hilt.  Interestingly, I have been unable to find any unit markings.

Blade length and width: 35.5in. x 1.25in.

Blade type:  slightly curved, flat back, single broad fuller to within 8in. of the spear point; double edged for the last 10in.

Guard:  plain steel, three-bar.  Single hooked quillon.

Grip:  wood, covered with leather.  Also, extra shrink-wrapped leather cover.

Scabbard:  steel, with two bands and loose rings; large shoe.

Back edge has maker’s stamp: OSBORN. Thomas Osborn of Birmingham (a major Government contractor).

Believed influenced by the French Light Cavalry sword, Model 1816.  Essentially, a compromise “cut and thrust” sword.  Production started in 1823, each sword costing eighteen shillings, excluding the scabbard.  Superseded by the dual-purpose Sword, Cavalry, Pattern 1853.
