Sales enquiries

A scarce example with its original leather and steel scabbard, a French An XIII briquet, dated 1814 (feint) to blade's spin and correctly marked with the poinçons of Borson, Bick and Lobstein (see: French state inspection marks). So the sword may well have been at Waterloo.

The 23 1/4 inch blade is aged, speckled with now inactive rust, but in good strong order generally, and firm in the hilt. The hilt in good order. The sword sheathes and draws well except leather shrinkage means it does not fully go into into the scabbard, about 1/4 inch of the forte of the blade shows, but oh well, to get the scabbard is a huge plus. Further / full sized photos available upon request. Item Ref: A38.
