Sword of Sir William Peel
Roman legionary-style sword, which belonged to Captain Sir William Peel (1824-1858). The sword consists of a cruciform hilt made of gilt brass and dark brown wood. The pommel cap is also made of gilt brass and is radially fluted from a small tang button. The flutes continue up the wooden grip as far as a small, fluted ferrule at the top. The grip tapers from its widest part, at the pommel, to its narrowest, at the ferrule. The sword has a simple gilt brass cross-guard with straight quillons that have swollen finials. The obverse and reverse faces of the guard are decorated with a stippled finish, edged with a raised border of plain metal.
