The Confederate Dolphin Head Naval Officer's Sword was based off of the British pattern1827 Lion's Head Naval Officer's sword. The scabbard throat and blade are marked "FIRMIN & SONS 153 Strand & 13 Conduit St. London. The blade is very good with a medium grey patina and deep etching that remains intact with a distinct Confederate 2nd National Flag. The blade has several nicks and is missing the brass proved disc on the obverse ricasso. The guard and hilt have a lovely deep brown mustard patina with a few minute traces of the gold gilt. The original grip and wire wrap are fine and intact. The scabbard is very good with minor finish loss and surface scuffing from wear. Overall, a nice example of a Confederate Naval Officers and rarer than the Courtney and Tennant/ Mole examples.
