Full Dress Sabretache

This pattern stayed basically the same from when it was first introduced in 1833 up until 1901 when it was officially abolished. The lace round the edge is slightly quilted in this case although it was usually flat. The highly ornate embroidery on the dark blue face of the sabretache is similar to the full dress pouch. From top to bottom: The Roal Coat-of-Arms, UBIQUE, laurel and oakleaves, gilt metal cannon, motto on crimson velvet scroll QUO FAS ET GLORIA DUCUNT - Where Right and Glory Lead.
