This early 19th c. American officer's pillow pommel sword is almost certainly a product of an English cutler. The quality of the blade and the fine execution of the blade decoration are indicative of a good London maker. Blade is 33.5" long, of the broadsword variety, with a deep median fuller on either side, and is profusely decorated with the gild engraved imagery of American vernacular, Indian head-dress, Eagle, the Phrygian hat, etc. The blue and gilt are covered with patina. The hilt shows traces of silver-wash, the grip has an age split in the back. The sword is very stable, with no extraneous movement.
This is a rarely seen variety of the the War of 1812 Period American officers swords.
