Lloyds Patriotic Fund £50 presentation sword
Lloyds Patriotic Fund £50 presentation sword, which belonged to Captain Samuel Mallock (died 1845). The hilt of the sword consists of a gilt quillon, which is shaped like a Roman fascis, the guard meeting this at right angles and made in the form of a Hercules club. A snake is entwined around the club, and it is attached to a loop in the mouth of the lion's head, which forms the pommel. The sword has a gilt lion's head pommel and back-piece. The ivory grip is diamond knurled. There is a rectangular plaque at the base of the grip, which is decorated with a group in relief depicting a cannon, an anchor and a trident. The sword has triangular langets, which are decorated in relief with a floral pendant. The sword comes complete with a sword knot.
