Early 19th century. Fine 11 1/4” blade, scalloped back with narrow back fuller and spear point. Carved black wood hilt, transitional form characteristic of the period. Evidently bog oak, in basket weave motif, set with silver studs, a few missing. Silver throat mount and pommel. Black leather scabbard (surface congealed) with matching silver mounts. The accessory knife and fork lacking. Type evolved from the Scottish Restoration when military pressure necessitated repatriation of the Scots and Scottish pride was demonstrated in its weapons and through the culture as a whole.
