This American mounted artillery non-comissioned officer's saber dates ca.1812. According to Bezdek, swords of this configuration, with a reverse P styled brass hilts, leather-covered grips, curved blades, and brass-mounted leather scabbards, were produced by the likes of William Rose and Nathan Starr, as well as imported from Solingen. This sword is mounted with a 31" blade, which is secured to the pommel with a tang nut. Scabbard is unmistakeably American, with all three pieces of brass furniture punch-secured to the leather. Belt hangers rarely survive, but both are present here. The saber is essentially in untouched original condition. I have put a coat of Pecard's leather dressing on the scabbard leather, which was rather dry, and now feels supple. Blade is in fantastic unsharpened and uncleaned condition, maintining its original polish, with only a few superficial spots of darkening.
Artillery sabers from the War of 1812 are rather scarce, as the collectors know, and this is an excellent example.
