Eaglehead Naval Dirk

RARE EAGLE POMMEL NAVAL DIRK. Nice large size measuring 15" overall length. 10" curved blade with most all of its bright blue, gilt and polished finishes. Upper portion with blue and gilt floral decoration and "LONDON" within scroll panel. Reverse with blue and gilt panel depicting flags, cannon, arms and foliate designs. Solid ivory grip with original, rope design, wire wrap. Engraved ferrule and a langet with raised anchor decoration. Gilt metal scabbard engraved both sides with three sections of foliate designs. Condition overall excellent with metal retaining some of its original gilt finish. Blade as near mint as can be expected for an 1810 era dirk. No chain guard and likely had a small slotted piece to reduce the opening at the top of the sheath. A nice Eaglehead naval dirk made for the American market.
