AMERICAN OFFICER'S BLUED AND GILDED SWORD CA.1810
Available in the following categories:
NO LONGER AVAILABLE


This interesting American officer's saber dates to the first years of the 19th century. Bone grip is decorated in a popular American motif of incised cross-checking, separated by the "duck foot" patterns. Hilt has a bit of a wobble, as many of them do. Tang button is rough due to the loose hilt. Blade is 29" long, nicely blued and gilded when new, now showing multiple nicks along the cutting edge. Blue and gild are not in a bad shape at all, with a good amount of luster. Blade is marked with a letter K in an oval, which I would venture and say stands for Ketland. The eagle is nicely engraved, with 15 Stars and the usual attributes. Scabbard has lost its locket and tip, leather has dried and shrunk. Judging by the blade length, sword belonged to a naval or artillery officer.
