Hilt of French small-sword
The hilt consists of a gilt brass knuckle-bow swelling at its mid-point to accommodate a lion's mask and a quarterfoil. An oval counter-guard is cast in one piece with the bow and bears an anchor, on the left side of which, a female figure, dressed in the classical style, is leaning. Behind her is a trophy of flags, swords and a circular shield and at the top of the design, on each side, a dolphin's head.
