From the William Fagan Ltd. Collection

This sword which dates to the second quarter of the 18th century is of a quality and exhibits artistry identified with a handful of makers. The hilt is of so-called Glasgow form with strap like elements enclosing the principle panels. The back panel and those flanking it employ design features which distinguish it from other examples and clearly identify it as the product of the same maker as an example which was displayed at the exhibition on Drumossie Moor from April to September, 1996 to commemorate the 250 anniversary of the Jacobite Rebellion and the Battle of Culloden. That example is illustrated in Culloden, The Swords and the Sorrows, the catalog of that exhibition, plate 1:21. Both are unsigned and the maker remains unidentified. Both employ a unique bar and panel pattern to the hilt elements. The bars are stepped and offset, which the cataloger compares to the emergence of a flower stem. The panels of both employ hearts with divided top intersections each with a fishtail merlon between the lobes. As with the referenced example, this example is mounted with a German blade of the late 17th century. 35 3/8" length blade.
