This is a nice accompaniment to an 1860 naval cutlass: a very good condition belt frog in buff leather. Cutlass were often stored in racks on board ship, but were passed out to certain members of gun crews and to boarding parties. Designed to be worn on the 1841 pattern hook and eye belt or the 1862 belt with friction buckle, the cutlass was the quintessential naval weapon for close combat and might be used to hack through anti-boarding nets as well deal with similarly armed opponents on cramped decks. The contour of frog shows that it had a cutlass scabbard in it for a long time. The stitching, however, is firm and secure. The buff leather is excellent. The navy seems to have preferred buff to bridle leather for its greater ability to deal with water.  [sr]
