    American Eaglehead Mounted Artillery Officer's, ca. 1815. Very wide 30-inch blade decorated for half its length with fire blue and with engraved military and floral motifs highlighted with gilt., the obverse including an American shield and "Warranted" in a riband at the base. Blade excellent, really very pretty, bright and clean retaining 80% of the original fire blue and gilt. All brass hilt, fluted on the face of the knucklebow, splitting at the base to form branches on either side. Nicely delineated eagle pommel, fluted dark horn one piece grip with brass ferrule at the base. The quillon is decorated with a fan like motif. Hilt excellent retaining traces of the original gilt. Brass mounted leather scabbard excellent, very sound with just some crackling to the finish and a few very small areas of flaking. Brass mounts perfect, decorated with line engraving, the throat utilizing a single carrying ring and frog stud. There is no sign the scabbard ever carried a middle mount. A very attractive American saber, the blade width indicating its possible use during the War of 1812.
