The elegant symmetrical hilt is fashioned of forged rectangular-section iron bars showing lamination and featuring horizontally recurved quillons with small button finials.
Emanating from the quillons are a series of interconnected looping bars, enclosing an integral round plate on each side pierced with holes framed by an incised double diamond. The sword has a faceted pear-shaped pommel with button.
The grip features two sizes of twisted iron wire and turk’s heads top and bottom. Diamond-section 38” Spanish blade deeply stamped with a different mark on each side of the ricasso.
