UNUSUAL EAGLE POMMEL DIRK WITH SCABBARD
PRICE $ 385.00 plus $20.00 for shipping and handling to 48 contiguous STATES.
Presented is an unusual dirk and scabbard, with
a combined length of 13 3/4". It has an eagle headed pommel which is reminiscent of the one pictured on page 63, and
on the inside dust cover, of Mowary's, "The American Eagle Headed Sword". The bone handle has brown inserts with an
acorn tipped qullion, and original chain guard. The acid etched curved blade shows a faint design which, unfortunately,
is illegible. The edge and false edge are very sharp. There is an unusual mark on the ricasso in the form of a soup ladle
which appears to be Mid-Eastern in character. However, a review of Arabic, Persian, Moroccan and Moorish alphabets
don't reveal anything similar. The scabbard is tooled with crosshatching on the reverse and hand stitching on the obverse.
It has a lower and upper brass band with the upper band having a hook to hold it in place. The metal work has a nice patina
and remnants of gilding are present.
Blade 8" long X 1" at widest and 1/4" thick
Grip 4 1/2" long x 1 1/4" wide x 1" thick
Close-up, soup ladle type mark
design is illegible
Acorn quillon and original chain
CONDITION: Considering its age and use, this example is in excellent
condition. The blade is solid in its handle, and the scabbard has no faults.
