    About this item

    Iron hilt with asymmetrical shell guard, pas d’ane, knuckle bow, single diagonal quillon, and
    spherical pommel with button; inlaid with solid silver and chiseled in relief with classical
    foliate decoration on a blackened background.  The grip wrapped with single-strand copper
    and twisted iron wire and finished with turks heads top and bottom.  Slender diamond-
    section 31 ½" blade with long hexagonal ricasso inlaid with brass in classical style and
    bordered with triple fluting on each side.  Overall length 37 3/4".  Beautiful condition with
    very minor silver loss (primarily on the pommel); the blade with very light pitting and age
    staining.  These early smallswords show a level of artistry that is rarely equaled in later
    examples, with intricately chiseled decoration as opposed to the cast hilts of most 18th C
    examples.
