Hilt of hanger
Hanger, which originally belonged to Admiral Sir Robert Barlow (died 1843). The hilt of the hanger consists of a brass (probably) stirrup guard, which has a side ring on the obverse and an inset foul anchor. The hanger has an upturned disc terminal and there is a ring fitted at the top of the stirrup to take a sword knot. The hanger has a flat pommel with a prominent tang button and a plain back-piece. The ivory grip has twenty-eight grooves, which imitate binding.
