Hilt of French sword
French sword. The hilt consists of a gilt brass knuckle-guard of near stirrup form, broadest near the pommel and pierced, via a rectangular block, to an upward curved quillon with lion's-head finial. The block bears an anchor superimposed on two flags in saltire and laurel wreath on either side of the guard itself. Escutcheon-shaped langets are embossed with the sun and a length of rope. The gilt brass pommel swells below a neck to a bound wreath and has a flat end.
