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.
