S-bar hilted sword
S-bar hilted sword, the sword consists of an S-bar type hilt. The sword has a lion's-head pommel and back-piece, the mane extending one third of the way down the back-piece. The white ivory grip is diamond knurled and is bound with three gilt wires. There is a ring on the pommel for a sword knot. The sword has a prominent tang button. This sword is not a regulation pattern and the hilt is uncommon for a fighting sword of this period. The regulation pattern of fighting sword introduced in 1805 superseded this type of sword.
