Royal Navy Officer's Sword - First introduced in 1827, this sword even found its way into the hands of the officers of the Confederate Navy during the American Civil War. This beautiful sword is made with the lion's head pommel/back strap. The solid bowl guard is pebbled to create the illusion of negative space, and in the center is a crown and fouled anchor. The sword knot slot in the guard has been rounded to allow the Navy cord knot to pass through. The folding rear part of the guard is functional. The grip is ray skin and retains the triple strands of braided wire with gilt finish. A truly beautiful sword!
