Unique example of an English Dated 1660 Officer's Dish-hilted Sword
This is an English Dated 1660 Officer's Dish-hilted type Sword of very unusual type and form. It comprises an iron and brass hilt that is extensively decorated with pierced neo-classical figures, human-heads, mythological creatures and floral, scrolling decoration. The grip is cast solid brass with deeply chiselled decoration and ovoid pommel. The iron knucklebow is swollen to the centre and forms two counter-curved hilt bars. The blade is dated "1660" to both sides. It is extremely rare to see this combination of brass and iron used on hilts of this period.
