This deluxe, presentation-quality eagle pommel US Army officer's fighting sword dates to the first decade of the 19th century, and is of English manufacture, a London or Birmingham maker's export to the US. The decorations on the blade are quite unique in their fine detail, as well as the sheer scope of the imagery. Repeated motif of cannon may suggest a mounted artillery officer's weapon, but this is purely conjectural. Hilt casting is of the highest degree, especially evident in the over-sized weeping eagle pommel and sea-shell langets. There are two period repairs to the knuckle-bow, one near the counter-guard, the other at the juncture with the pommel, which do not detract from the beauty of this fine sword. Massive blade is 30" long, inscribed Warranted, and struck with the number 12 on the back.
