Pattern which evolved in response to the French threat which materialized as the Napoleonic Wars. See Swords and Daggers, Wilkinson, pl.119. Brass hilt with boat form shows good patina. Silver wire wrapped grip. 33” d.e. broad fullered blade decorated first third with foliage, GIBSON’S THOMPSON & CRAIG’S WARANTEED. That retailer was active 1796-1803 only, one source locating it in Edinburgh. Blade 99% bright with scattered small areas pitting, primarily along the edge. Classic for Napoleonic Wars and may well have served at Waterloo.
