The head is etched in two stages: the upper with the Imperial crowned double eagle enclosed by decorative motifs of regulation design. The lower portion decorated with an elaborate etched artillery trophy and retaining much of its original gilding. On a turned moulded socket mounted on its wooden staff with a patterned silk and bullion tassel, probably the original also.
