Sharp & Hamilton / Nashville Plow Works. These were early war Confederate Cavalry sabers

Changing fencing techniques necessitated greater protection from the frontal thrust and resulted in guard variations including the cup hilt, dish hilt and shell guard, all of which were produced simultaneously.
