This sword is featured in figure 579 on page 641 of "American Silver-Hilted, Revolutionary and Early Federal Swords" by Daniel D. Hartzler. Hartzler attributes these swords to New Orleans, Louisiana manufacture, as they have French style hilts. The extremely long, curved, single edged blade has a wide shallow fuller and a narrow deep fuller above. There are shaped blued panels with gilt decoration on both sides. The right side is engraved with an Indian chief's head, a banner that reads "AMERICAN / LT. HORSE" a patriotic Federal eagle, and a "WARRANTED" banner. The other side shows floral motifs, a splayed eagle with "UNITED / STATES" banner and a liberty cap and stand of arms. There is also a "WOOLEY, DEAKON" banner and an acanthus leaf at the ricasso. The solid silver stirrup hilt is in the French taste and has a knuckle-turned quillon. The knuckle bow has a faceted ovoid section in the center surrounded by a ball on each side. French pommel fluted on top with a faceted section below. Grip is of ivory and has checkered panels on each side and fluted sections on the top and bottom. CONDITION: Blade retains a spotted grey patina with some scattered areas of light pitting and generous traces of faded blue. Much of the gilt remains in engraved designs. Hilt retains a mellow patina with some darker areas. Grip shows yellowing from light exposure on one side and some age cracks. A very attractive American silver hilted cavalry saber. PROVENANCE: Show in figure 579 on page 641 of "American Silver-Hilted, Revolutionary and Early Federal Swords" by Daniel D. Hartzler. From the Collection of George M. Rapport. DMG.
