Scimitar which belonged to Captain Edward Crofton

Scimitar which belonged to Captain Edward Crofton (active 1804-1812). The hilt is of the 'Mameluke' type, with a polished amber horn grip in two parts, straight quillons with swollen and pointed ends, narrow pointed langets and reverse langets, striated back-piece between the two parts of the grip continued over the pommel reaching to the leading quillon, rounded pommel pierced for a sword knot (pieces of which remain). All the metal parts of the hilt are of silver, the quillons ; langets being decorated with scrolls ; bearing a crescent at the mid-point on each side. The quillons are engraved on the top with 'Captain Edward Crofton R.N.' and underneath with 'Remember Nelson'. The very restricted part of the sword knot which remains is apparently of a type appropriate to the Royal Navy.
