Federal era saber with fantastic "folk art" lion pommel; the form may be assigned to the group known as American Light Horse sabers. The 36" plain blade is barely curved, single rudimentary fuller' 12" false edge. Grip and pommel cast in one piece; Scratch-carved (engraved) facial features that make ya' smile. The "D" shaped flat brass knuckle bow and guard is pierced with four rectangular sections. All nomenclature remaining in excellent condition, dark patina, some scattered light clouds of dark surface rust that will be amicable to oil, else fine.
