From the William Fagan Ltd. Collection

Perhaps Chester. Pleasantly cupped symmetrical shell guards decorated in high relief with mythological scenes inside and out. The quillon block with Hercules with club and lion skin, a Roman warrior opposite. The pommel decorated in archangels and masks. The knuckle bow with rococo forms, popular in England by this time and struck with four hallmarks. The grip with plain silver wire wrap in chevrons as is correct for the period. Hilt decoration especially crisp for silver, but for a tiny wear spot to the under shell, each side of the blade, evidently from hanging. 29 1/2" triangular blade decorated with a foliage panel at the forte. Quite smooth with a little mottled discoloration. The decoration a little weak. Charming example.
