Must see. Beautiful detail! A remarkable 18th century English silver hilted small sword in good condition with hallmarks for London 1764/5. The maker is William Kinman, one of the foremost makers of silver hilted swords in London in the 18th century, and whose work represents the highest standards of English craftsmanship. https://darksword-armory.com/

Sword

Sword, France (possibly made) Switzerland (possibly made), ca. 1760, V Swords were worn with civilian clothes as ‘small swords’, for self-defence and denoting status for the well-dressed gentleman. Small swords were items of male jewellery. By the 1750s, their elaborate gold and silver hilts, mounted with precious stones and fine enamelling, were the products of the goldsmith and jeweller rather than the swordsmith. They made fitting rewards for distinguished military and naval service.

Arming Sword Dated: circa 1530-50 There’s a pair of faceted arms carrying at their head an inverted U-shaped bar ridged made en suite with the quillon terminals. The hilt of the sword is a variation of the Type 16 discussed in A.V.B. Norman, The Rapier and Small-Sword 1460-1820, London 1980, pp. 80-82. A sword with a very closely comparable hilt is alternatively given a Spanish late 15th century attribution by Oakeshott. Type XVIIIc
