This unusual Eagle pommel sword dates ca.1800-1820, and is mounted with a small-sword 28" straight thrusting blade, which was tinned to prevent rusting, a feature sometimes encountered on naval edged weapons of the pre-nickel plating era. The open beaked eagle pommel is in French fashion, and exhibits a great deal of fine detail. Pommel and grip were cast in one piece. Remnants of gold wash are present in the recesses of the hilt. Cross guard terminates in two acorn-shaped quillons. Old museum or collection inventory tag is attached to the grip.
