Presentation sword of Admiral Sir John Duckworth

Presentation swords were given by individuals and bodies such as the City of London and the Lloyd's Patriotic Fund to naval officers in recognition of acts of bravery or as a mark of respect. It belonged to Admiral Sir John Thomas Duckworth (1748-1817). The hilt of the sword consists of a gold lion's-head pommel and knuckle-bow guard made in the form of a serpent, with its head forming the quillon and its tail issuing from the lion's mouth. The gilt grip is embossed on each side with the arms of Jamaica with a foul anchor below and a naval crown encircled by laurel leaves above. The curved damascened steel blade has a broad shallow groove running to within 203 mm of the point. The obverse of the blade is engraved with a depiction of a sea monster with a flag emblazoned with arms, with decoration above, including entwined dolphins and the crowned monogram 'GR'.
