Form is indicative of production in the middle of the 18th century, and follows the Glasgow school tradition of wide bars. Sword has one full edge while rear is flatbacked for approximately 1/2" of the length before tapering to an edge. Blade with single long fuller that runs nearly the full length of the blade, while a second fuller runs parallel to flat back and disappears with taper. Glasgow style wide bars with pierced decorations and gilding, including hearts and geomtrics. Grip has a spiral groove for wire which is no longer present, remnants visible at pommel side terminal, affixed by nails. Small quillon curls towards blade, with 2 branches on cutting edge side of hilt which form another rudimentary quillon. Nails utilized as spacers to tighten the fit of blade to hilt. PROVENANCE: Peter Finer, 1995 Catalogue, Item 190; Earlshall Castle, Scotland. CONDITION: Gilt is very good with flashes of chocolate patinated metal throughout. Grip is excellent with some minor bumps and scratches but free of cracks; some chips at either terminal. Blade has spotted cleaned oxidation throughout, with 2 sections towards the point having gone clean through; these areas measure approximately 1/2" long but are extremely thin. Blade has a visible bend towards center point. This is a very attractive example. EMW
