Saber, Eagle Head Mounted, Saber with Scabbard, Gilt Brass, Blued Blade Unknown Maker, Early 19th century, Parta Tueri!

The outstanding blued blade with wide fuller is 31-inches in length; the gilt, etched and engraved decoration includes, foliate, scrolling acanthus motif and panoply of arms…the blue is magnificently bright; blade is bright and clean…edge is perfect. There is very minor wear to a very small and narrow area of forte caused by scabbard. Interestingly, a very different bird head pommel…the top ornamented with four robust acorns, the tapering backstrap features an intertwined vine of oakleaves against finely a stippled ground within raised borders. The carved grip joins a detailed ferrule and shows a tight age crack (hairline). The oakleaf knuckle bow features a garland of acanthus leaves and bead; quillon is downturned over blade; langets feature a raised shield having raised letters “PATRA TUERI” [defend what you have won]. The raised oval is within a laurel wreath set against a finely reeded background with spandrels. The scabbard is nicely engraved with American eagle and scrolled acanthus foliate designs; four-inches of the tip is similarly ornamented.
Overall length: 36”
