This smallsword features a solid silver hilt with London hallmarks and a date mark corresponding to the year 1763. The hilt displays typical design elements of the period, with a clam-shaped guard and a grip wrapped in twisted wire.

The blade is of a triangular cross-section, which is common for smallswords of this era, designed for thrusting in dueling or self-defense. The hallmarks on the sword provide important information about its provenance and authenticity as an 18th-century weapon. The piece serves as an example of both the craftsmanship of London silversmiths and the types of personal arms favored by gentlemen of the period.
