Hanger, the hilt of the hanger consists of a brass cross-guard, which has disc-shaped, inversed finials and small plain langets. The hanger has a lion's-head pommel, which is inclined forward with a mask placed on a 'neck' (plinth), and a smooth back-piece. The back-piece of the hilt is engraved with the name 'T M Hardy'. The attribution of the hanger to Vice-Admiral Sir Thomas Masterman Hardy (1769-1839) is almost certainly false.
