This is a great looking sword! It is the War of 1812 period eagle head officer’s sword. This is the curve bladed version that is often listed as an Infantry officer’s sword. This one is made about 1820 or so. The blade is full-length at 30 inches. The blade, like the rest of the sword, has a wonderful color look all over. On the sides of the blade it has the ornate designs that include the flag and cannon design with the liberty cap above. At the base of the blade it has the maker's marking of the high quality London Maker Osborne & Gunby. Henry Osborne and John Gunby operated together form 1808 until 1818. They produced beautiful pieces like this for the American Market. The blade still has a nice amount of the original gold detail and traces of the original factory fire blue finish. At the top of the sword it has the large eagle head pommel cap. The hand guard is the version with the single branch which is made of brass. The original dark brown pressed horn handle of the sword is present on the grip. The horn has aged to a beautiful dark chocolate tone. The sword scabbard is still present which is rare because of their leather and brass construction. This is a beautiful early style eagle head design officer’s sword from the Osborne and Gunby firm.
