    ANTIQUE WEAPON STORE


    Clearly showing the French influence in style this beautiful sword features cast brass hilt
    consisting of down-turned clamshell guard depicting an eagle clutching arrows in its talons
    with US shield on its breast and surrounded by laurel leaves.  Integral knuckle bow with
    scroll design connecting to the throat of the eagle head pommel.  Two-piece checkered
    bone slab grips with base ferrule decorated with acanthus.  Straight 31 3/4" single-edged
    blade with single 2/3 length fuller; etched, blued, and gilt with engraved gold-filled
    decoration over the upper third depicting foliage and stands of arms; the lower 15" double-
    edged.  In its original brass scabbard with two carrying rings and frog button (some
    scratches dents from age and use).  Sword is untouched since its period of use and shows
    dark patina to all parts; blade bluing very dark and engravings worn.  Overall length 36
    1/4", not including scabbard.  Possibly a French import, but clearly made for an
     American officer.
