Straight stirrup hilted sword by Prosser zoom

Straight stirrup hilted sword

This sword is unlikely to date from later than 1827 and could be considerably earlier. The steel guard and semi-circular langet could indicate an Army origin for that part though the pommel and back-piece are quite orthodox for the Navy. The lack of an anchor on the langet is, perhaps, unusual after 1812. The scabbard mounts are decorated in an orthodox way for swords of the period 1805-27 though the frog stud, which presumably antedates the rings, is of an earlier design. The blade is unusually heavy and might conceivably also have an Army origin. It is, however, too short for calvalry use and does not appear to have been shortened since manufacture - it is its original length.
