This desirable boat-guard silver hilt dates to about 1750. These were used by British and American officers alike during the Revolutionary War. The tapered straight diamond section blade is unmarked. Solid silver hilt with boat guard chased with gadrooned edges and a shell quillon. S-shaped guard behind pas d'ane rings. Knucklbow with gadrooned center section. The pas d'ane rings have indistinct British hallmarks. Elongated ball pommel with spiraling chased gadrooning. Grip wrapped with ornate braided strands of silver wire and silver strips. Complete with its original brown leather scabbard with silver throat mount marked "FAYLE / Fleet Street". CONDITION: Blade retains a grey surface with some scattered heavy corrosion and losses to edges. Hilt excellent showing some light wear to guard edges and a pleasing pewter patina. Grip wrap slightly loose and hilt slightly loose to blade. Scabbard mount very good. Leather has a repair to secure the bottom 13 - 7/8". Some losses to edges and stitching. Tooled decoration still visible. A nicer than usual silver hilted small sword complete with its scabbard. DMG
