The Jacobite Rebellions of 1688 to 1746 championed the restoration to the throne of the House of Stuart, deposed during the English Civil War. Scottish pride and the perception of English treachery necessitated that every man own a sword. This example is dated by its large rounded basket hilt which is made without a quillon scroll. The proportions throughout are somewhat larger than usually encountered, a reflection of the stature of the owner. The blade, as with nearly all Scottish basket hilts, is earlier. The hilt decoration is typical and suggestive of provincial manufacture. Blade length: 33 1/8" GC.482 GC.482 GC482 GC 482
