- Quantity Available: 1
Closely resembling the P1792 British sergeant’s spontoon, this example features silver work to the ferrule, crosspiece, and base of blade. The work appears like koftgari work found in India and is old and from its period of use. The workmanship of the spontoon itself appears to be English, so it is likely that it was carried in India and the silver work was done there, probably as an East India Company piece. Features leaf-shaped 10 ½" blade with medial ridge, two-stage turned baluster, and crosspiece with expanded finials. Mounted on later round-section hardwood shaft. Iron parts pitted and silver showing wear and losses, commensurate with age and use. Length of metal 15 3/4", overall 79 1/2".
