This little gem (1 & 3/4" high approx) is a relic of the Ancien Regime of France, contemporary with the later era of the American Revolutionary Wars. It is made of chiselled iron with a stippled mercury gilt finish. The rest of the hilt would have been en suite with the pommel and complete examples are now comparatively rare.

The relief ironwork has a russet finish and this may have been its original state, but I have also seen them with a polished finish.

testimonials

Having received the beautiful medal that has been the subject of many recent phone calls, I am absolutely delighted with it. More importantly, the research you provided into the military backgrounds of all those involved made it all the more poignant. Thank you for your highly professional and friendly help and advice throughout the transaction.

Thank you, Chris. All arrived safely. Very quickly too, much quicker than from the US! Very satisfied. It is a nice sword.

Anyway, thanks again and I have marked your site for future interest.
