Thanks and misrepresented/badly categorized as the 19th century Edit to mention that Harold Peterson lists this sword in his American Silver Hilted Swords section .51 and dates it to 1805 and made by William Ball Jr. 36 1/2" overall 30 1/2" !3/8" wide at the guard. There is more of a paragraph there for that sword. The small bird form really does belong to the previous century but Peterson does list the last few of the type as c.1805 as a latest likely produced.

the Mabel Brady Garvan Collection (many thousands of objects) at the Yale University Art Gallery. It is "one of the most comprehensive collections of early American arts and crafts in the nation

Methinks they have some work to do with better descriptions and research Wink

Cheers
