This American artillery officer's sword by Horstmann & Sons dates ca.1830-1845. The hilt on this sword is the same as on the sword number 102 in H.L.Peterson's book, aside from the different grips. Blade decoration is quite sound and prominent. A nice touch is the presence of the crossed arrows, which echoes the British artillery officer's blade decorations of that period. Cannon and cannon balls are cast in one of the panels on the grip, along with other military objects. It is uncommon to see any military decorations on the American sword hilts in general, and so many military trophies on one hilt in particular. There is some minor looseness to the hilt. Blade is 74cm/29" long.
