Light Cavalry-type sword
Light cavalry-type sword, which is thought to have belonged to Vice-Admiral Richard H. Pearson (active 1793-1838). The sword consists of a gold stirrup hilt, with engraved langets. The sword has a flat green and gold, sword knot complete with a green and gold tassel. The sword knot was probably once blue and gold, age having turned the blue to green. The sword has a white ivory grip with a plain rounded gilt pommel and back-piece. The flat-backed steel blade is very curved and has a single broad fuller running to the point. The obverse of the blade is engraved with a crown above the Royal arms.
