Silver Mounted Short-Sword, Saber, Eagle Pommel Unknown Maker, Probably American, Circa 1780

The eagle pommel is an early type and displays engraved eyes, beak, and feathers at neck; the beak is pierced, receiving the chain guard that joins the lower quillon. The grip is bone, with a tapering silver ferrule at the base. The quillons’ feature eagle finials. The short and slightly curved blade has a single edge with a false edge running from the end of the single narrow fuller to tip of blade. About half the blade is blued displaying some thinning and wear, otherwise bright with mottled black. The leather scabbard is supple, stitching intact; silver mounted…the throat and middle band are missing carrying rings; no frog stud; drag is fine.
