Of large fighting proportions, this sword reiterates its purpose in the particularly high relief pierced decoration of military drums, flag splays and a cannon. The oval guard incorporates a shell splay front and back, in the increasingly popular rococo style. The guard arms are struck with London hallmarks and the maker's mark of George Fayle (entered 1767). The date letter is indecipherable. The colichemarde blade is decorated with foliage and fruit at the forte.
