This pattern of French-import saber, with Lion-head pommel, was highly popular among U.S. Army officers during the War of 1812 as seen in numerous portraits, including that of General Andrew Jackson. The single-edged, curved blade is 33" long by 1 - 1/8" wide at ricasso, with a single wide fuller and a 5" false edge; 39" overall length. Matching all-brass scabbard, with integral bands for suspension rings, each decorated with a center band of oak leaves, flanked by beaded edges. CONDITION: The brass hilt and scabbard are now devoid of any gilding and the cross-hatched, bone grips have lost 50% of their original black finish. The blade has been heavily cleaned over time and no traces of decoration are readily seen; finish is a mottled grey with light pitting. The scabbard has numerous dents but the blade still fits well.
