Stirrup hilted 'fighting' sword
Stirrup hilted 'fighting' sword, which belonged to Admiral Sir William Sidney Smith (1764-1840). The hilt of the sword consists of a gilt stirrup guard with langets. A metal plate of some kind seems to have been riveted to the obverse langet but has become detached. The reverse langet is engraved with a foul anchor motif. The sword has a lion's-head pommel, the mane extending one-third of the length of the back-piece. The white polished ivory grip is bound with three gilt wires.
