The brass hand guard which would normally have the VR cypher is marked NEPAUL complete with a matching totally original all brass tropical scabbard. The 33" blade is fully etched with scrolls and Nepalese Royal symbols. Scabbard bears some dents which do not show up in the photographs, as well as some splitting along the brazed seam. The blade etching & embossing also shows wear from cleaning. There are also some stains and areas of past pitting, as shown.
Very probably supplied after the Ruler of Nepal visited The Great Sepoy Rebellion, known as the Indian Mutiny of 1857 to 1859. Offered in great display condition this is a very rare British contractor made sword perfect to add to any British Victorian collection.
