    British Bugler's or Cavalry Bandsman's Sword, Circa 1828. A scarce example of the lancer, hussar and light dragoon bugler or bandsman's saber of the early 19th century. It is complete with a cast-brass hilt with lion's head pommel, and original chain guard. The curved, un-fullered blade measures approximately 29¾" in length. The blade bears the etched maker's mark of London cutlers J. Hebberd and Hume which was located at 30 Princes Street, London during the 1814-1828 period. The scabbard is not present. The blade has a uniform patina and a few scattered spots of surface rust, otherwise it is in excellent condition.
