With ETCHED BLADE, BRASS HILT & SCABBARD
Here we present an antique Baker & McKenney Marked U.S. Model of 1860 Staff & Field Officer’s Sword. Baker & McKenney of New York was founded in January of 1864 by Laura Baker, widow of military goods dealer John A. Baker, and former employee James McKenney. The model 1860 was produced from the period of the American Civil War through the time of the Spanish-American War. The overall length is 35-3/8 inches and the etched blade measures 29 inches along with a gilt brass hilt, wire wrapped rayskin grip, and a nickel scabbard with brass fittings.
There are photographs of a U.S. soldier taken during the Spanish American War with one of these in hand. The blade is very nicely etched with an array of U.S. themed symbology and scrollwork. The handle is the original rayskin, bound in braided wire.
The overall condition is very good. The blade is nicely etched with a light gray patina. Solid hilt and tight brass wire. This example sports a fine scabbard with a bright nickel finish. The clam shell release button is missing.
