Early to mid-19th century, Scottish Revival Period. Bronze cruciform hilt with trefoil terminal cross guard. The grip, pommel and guard mounted with eight large faceted "stones" on applied filigree mounting clusters and singles of clear stones. All stones presumed to be paste. The decoration combines the Scottish taste for large faceted stones with the Victorian for elaborate intricate mounts. 29" medially ridged blade of substantial fighting weight. Velvet covered scabbard with three mounts, the middle with stone cluster matching the hilt. The pressure of the Napoleonic Wars led to the rearming of the Scots and a resurgence of Scottish pride. Swords such as this were cherished family symbols, used on holidays and for sword dancing.
