A very large and quite striking American Cavalry Officerâ€™s Saber with a very long and broad as well as strongly curved blade, mounted with a hilt of striking and unusual design. The brass mounts of the hilt are quite heavy, but unusually shaped, with large langets, and a disc with a lionâ€™s mask in the middle of the â€œD” guard. The bone grip is simply carved with diagonal grooves spaced along the grip. The heavy, curved blade is blued and gilt on its upper half, with a standing figure of Liberty on one side, and a large American Eagle on the other, with a Union shield on its breast, and a ribbon in its beak with â€œE Pluribus Unum.” There are 13 stars below the Eagle, and below that is a ribbon with â€œRichardS Upson and Co.” There is no scabbard.
Note: Upson was a well known New York retailer of custom made high end swords in the early Federal period.
Condition: The sword has seen some use, and the blue and gold on the blade is a little faded, but still largely visible. All of the engraving is visible, and retains its gilding. The hilt is excellent, and retains most of its gilding, and the grip is excellent. The point is very broad.
Size: The sword is 37 inches long overall, with the blade being 33 inches long and 1 ¾ inches wide at the ricasso.
