Sold Item Notice

We understand there are a a number of reproductions of this sword but these are all badly engraved "Coulaux & Cie Klingenthal France" (critically with "France" at the end), whereas this is finely engraved just "Coulaux & Cie Klingenthal" as it should be.

69.5 cm plain blade is in good condition (there was a lot of old / hard / caked on wax protecting it, now removed) and firm in the hilt. The hilt in very good condition, also the grip and grip wire bindings. The leather and gilt metal fittings scabbard had some sign of age (we applied shoe polish of course, and now it looks very good). The sword sheathes and draws well; there is a gap when fully sheathed as the scabbard stop that normally sits where the blade meets the hilt is missing.

A lovely looking sword and in very good condition; we suspect it was never or hardly used / worn. Please quote item reference number N04 (1285). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
