Brass hilt with D form guard and faceted urn form pommel. Brass wire wrapped leather covered grip. 23 5/8” sharply curved s.e. narrow fullered blade. Acutely angled point. The blade hand hammered, while most American swords used European blades, and clearly made to the specifications of the owner with exceptionally deep curvature and shapely angled point. Both features are characteristic of the Eastern European approach, derived from Ottoman swordsmanship, perhaps suggesting an Eastern European heritage or emigration of its owner. Its length strongly suggests that it was made for
shipboard use.
