    Description

    American Eaglehead Infantry Officer's Straight Sword C. 1825. 30" straight blade retains about 20% of the original fireblue and gilt on the engraved military and floral decorations, the balance generally smooth and clean with just some scattered salt and peppering. Guard with spread wing eagle surrounded by a wreath. Scrollwork knucklebow and slender eaglehead. Checkered bone plaque grips with a few age hairlines but very sound and nice patina. Leaf decorated brass straps on both sides with 3/8" leaf decorated ferrule at the base. Hilt with nice untouched patina, retaining most of the original silver wash under the guard. There is no scabbard.

    From the estate of Houston collector Brent Burg.
