This mid-18th century hunting sword features a slightly curved English cuttoe blade, narrow partial top fuller and wide shallow ferrule below on each side. Blade still retains an old "GUTHMAN/AMERICANA" sticker. Both sides of the blade show traces of engraved florals and arms motifs. There is a silver ferrule at the top of the blade, followed by a pierced and relief beaded s-shaped guard with pierced dual quillons. Above the guard is a ferrule below the grip engraved with a shell motif on both sides. The green dyed grip, stained using arsenic, has a detailed relief carved lion head at the pommel with an open mouth with teeth exposed. Lion has ebony eyes and a turned silver capstan on top. The grip is wrapped with a strand of crimped silver as well as a strand of twisted silver wire. Complete with its original tooled brown leather scabbard with plain unengraved silver mounts, top mount with silver frog stud. CONDITION: Blade retains a spotted grey patina and shows wear to engraving and a couple minor nicks to edge. Hilt is tight to blade, capstan and tang undisturbed. Scabbard very good showing some crazing and scuffing. Silver scabbard mounts and silver on hilt retain a pleasing patina. An attractive early silver mounted sword. DMG
