    Description

    Confederate Foot Artillery Sword With Belt Rig. A complete edged weapon ensemble for the prudent rebel anticipating close action with the enemy. The set consists of the following items: Foot artillery sword, maker unknown, 18.5" blade with an overall length of 24". This sword is patterned after the French model and lacks any identification markings. Its brass hilt, pommel and quillons are cast as one integral unit affixed to a gently tapering smooth blade. All elements have deep natural patinas. The blade shows light pitting throughout and a number of tiny edge nicks as expected; Leather scabbard, 19.5" overall, stitched to three-part 36.5" belt held together with two brass loops. The scabbard proper is secured by a brass frog stud and has a massive 5" tin tip painted black. The leather, although supple, is worn at stress points and exhibits overall crazing; Atlanta Arsenal cast brass rectangular C.S.A. belt plate. A true gem of a late war plate with excellent body curve, all three hooks and a deep, deep red-brown patina.
