    Description

    Model 1860 Staff Officer's Sword, 37.5" overall with 30" blade. An especially fancy version of a sword type that was made with a wide range of decorative embellishment. Although unmarked by a maker, this weapon is similar to the finest Horstmann or Tiffany products of the period. The blade enjoys elaborate floral engraving interspersed with patriotic motifs. The guard and pommel are of gilt cast brass and are decorated with stock martial themes. The grip appears to be silvered brass with rows of double brass wire. The underside of the guard is stamped with the number "24". The scabbard, stamped "7" near the throat, is of plated steel with brass furniture having open scrollwork on one side. Completing the ensemble is an elaborate brass drag having geometric designs. The grip wire is loose at one end, otherwise the sword is intact with only light scratches and normal wear.
