German or Dutch
L. 36 3/8 inches (92.5 cm); L. of blade 30 3/4 inches (78.2 cm)
Gift of Peter Finer, 2004
The spirally channeled surfaces and elegant foliate finials on the guards typify the flamboyant Rococo style. The small proportions suggest the sword was made for a young man. Although not hallmarked, this exquisitely detailed gold hilt is probably of either German or Dutch manufacture.
