This very early 19th c. Bolton-Upson eagle pommel sword bears a strong, 33" spadroon blade, decorated along half its length with fine blue and gilt symbols of the American vernacular, along with the WARRANTED and the importer's name, Richards Upson & Co. New York. The style of the Eagle's head is ascribed to Bolton of London, and is well-described by Mowbray. Traces of silver-wash remain on the hilt. Blade was period-mended after being broken; a sturdy smithing job, well-done in the field. This is a scarce style of the War of 1812 period American swords.
