Hi Rick,
Looks like the pouch from an officers cross belt. Originally for cartridges now a ceremonial uniform accessory. Here are some images pulled from the net.

Hi Jim,
Thought this might be of interest. Seems Osborn sword making may have ceased in the 1830's.
My Regards,

Hi,
The P1821 L.C. sabre I have is by Osborn. The single number acceptance mark denotes, as far as I can remember, a date of issue prior to the 1840's. I have photographed it with a later P1821...

Hi,
Although not the same one of the markings on this Kora of mine exhibits some similarities with the one on the sword in question.

Norman.

Hi,
I would suspect there is indeed merit in this. Styles seem to have been somewhat fluid in some cases although the more flamboyant curves appear to be particularly associated with those blades...

Hi Jim,
I would have designated this a Flank Officers sword of the Napoleonic era rather than a cavalry sword. The curvature of the blade and the canted hilt would suggest to me that this is...

Hi Jim,
I'm not sure this has anything to do with Karabela forms. The farmers knife or Bauernwehr was well established in Europe and as I see it this is the type of knife the man is...

Hi,
Again what Jim says makes sense. Without better photographs it's hard to say exactly and even then there was a plethora of individual styles in the late 18th early 19thC so could be difficult...

Hi Fernando,
I'm not sure the example you show conforms to a P1796. It looks, to me, more like a Georgian flank officer's sword. I have looked through Richard Dellar's book, The...

Hi Fernando,
Does the fullering go all the way to the tip? I can't make it out from the photograph.

Hi,
Just a wee update, I now have verification from the Royal Armouries that this is indeed as I thought a 1796 Pattern N.C.O.'s sword.

Hi Jim,
I don't think anybody is dismissing your thinking, more trying to root out the truth. The Paul Storr attribution to me is considerably less important than determining whether Briquet...
