Evidently about 1920 and characteristic of the Renaissance Revival popular at that time and seen in many movies, such as Sunset Boulevard, which feature mansions of the period. This one, in fact from the Hooper Mansion of Walpole, NH. 33 ¾” total length with romanticized gilt hilt and plated blade. Fine genuine age character. Interesting that in Jaws, which is as New Englandy as it gets, the oceanographer (Richard Dreyfuss) was named Hooper.
