Ex-norm flayderman collection
American small sword Circa 1780

Featured on Page 134 of George C Newmann's book Swords & Blades of the American Revolution.  This monogrammed piece is profusely decorated with eagles and patriotic symbol.  The original scabbard is in excellent condition. Monogrammed "JB" separated by (what appears to be a Fluer De Lis.  This sword hales from the collection of E. Norman Flayderman and is pictured on  Circa 1780-1790 and as possible property of a Jonas Bronk of New York.  The original crosshatched scabbard survives in wonderful condition.  The knucklebow bares a possible Washington motif with initials "DS" stamped into the heel of the knucklebow.  The pommel/guard front/crossguard are all adorned with patriotic eagles, while the inside of guard is adorned with herons.  Truly, a most patriotic small sword from one of the most world-renowned collectors.
