Henderson Ames Co. Antique Knights Templar Sword, Sheath & Hat - 1890's For Sale

Henderson Ames Co. Antique Knights Templar Sword, Sheath & Hat - 1890's

Sword Maker History:

Initially Henderson sold swords under his own name Frank Henderson and would continue to do so until he formed a partnership with Theron F Giddings in 1871. The new company, Henderson and Giddings Co. was a short lived venture and in 1873, Henderson resumed trade as Frank Henderson.

From this time Henderson began an association with the Ames Sword Company and as an agent distributed their line of fraternal swords and regalia. This relationship continued for two decades at which time, in 1893, he consolidated his affairs with Ames and formed the Henderson Ames Company.

Henderson bought out the E. A. Armstrong Regalia Factory, including all machinery and inventories a year later. After Henderson’s death in 1899 the company continued on for the next twenty-four years when it was purchased and dissolved by The M. C. Lilley and Company.

This Knights Templar Sword and Hat Combination was crafted for James P. Elliott and is being sold as a set and will not be separated.

Pommel: Depicts a knight’s head. .

Grip: The grip on a Templar sword is black (ebony?) with a inlaid silver cross.

Blade: The blade of the Templar sword is particularly ornate with engraved depiction of crusader scenes and lily work. The blade also has the name of the owner James P. Elliott engraved on it. The manufacturer Henderson Ames of Kalamazoo, MI is also engraved which dates this sword to the late 1800's.

Sheath: Is a nickel plated and indicates (so I am told) that the sword belonged to a Sir Knight. The sheath is very ornate with the Cross and Crown in the center. Other ornaments are a what looks like a downed knight and a Maltese cross on the very end. .

The accompanying hat is black and in good condition, manufactured by the same Henderson Ames Company with the owners name stamped in gold. A red and silver embroidered cross is on the front of the had. Size is approximately 22.5" in circumference. or 6 7/8.This sword belonged to my Grand Father.
