This beautiful ca.1770 cuttoe is of American or English manufacture. The beautiful gadrooned shaped hand grip is of turned ivory, dyed green in the fashion of that period. Montmorency blade is 26″ long. Furniture of the hilt is silver, decorated with ship’s masts, military trophies, and rococo motifs, and retains its original silver chain. There is some mild ivory shrinkage and wear due to age. A wonderful and scarce American Revolutionary War period sword, that would have been carried by a naval officer or a privateer!
