French 1831M Infantry (Garde Nationale) Gladius
In overall very good condition, a French 1831 Model Infantry (Garde
Nationale) Gladius Sword, rare Châtellerault version.
In very good overall condition, a scarce Châtellerault made
version of the French 1831 Model Infantry / Garde Nationale Gladius.
The 19 inch blade with poinçons and feint remains of Châtellerault
inscription to forte. Blade with some staining / wear but blemishes
do not detract in our opinion and should be easily removed with
metal polish if desired. Blade firm in the hilt. The brass hilt
in good condition. The gilt metal and brass scabbard good. The sword
sheathes and draws well.
