Eagle-Pommel Sword and Scabbard, Bone Grip, Gilt Brass, Blued Blade Unknown Maker

Early19th century, brass eagle pommel, backstrap, chain guard and quillon…backstrap and quillon show some thinning of gilt commensurate with use. The grip is carved of bone and was repaired under the eagle’s neck; a 5/8 by .5-inch area was chipped, now repaired with bone that is whiter than the whole. The blued blade is ornamented with great eagle and shield, stands of arms and foliate motifs; blade remains bright and does not have any nicks. The brass scabbard retains 90% gilt, thinning on edges; nicely engraved with acanthus designs flanking straps and centering an eagle perched on American shield. Drag is similarly decorated. Scabbard displays a few dings near drag and a .5-inch loss to backside of middle strap.
