Napoleonic French Naval Officer's Blue &
Gilt Etched Dirk, for sale
In fair to good condition, a Napoleonic French naval officer's
blue and gilt etched dirk.
With some blue and gilt etch remaining, this Napoleonic era French
naval dirk has an ivory grip / hilt (cracking from pommel nut) and
was once a very fine navy officer's dagger indeed. 8 1/8 Inch blade
in aged but good condition, a little loose in the hilt. The dirk
sheathes and draws well. The sheath has lost most of its gilt but
is still in good shape. Bought in the UK, who knows where this dirk
was liberated from its original owner! Yours for £xxx (too
late, now sold, but we will divulge the original sales price for
a small fee). Please quote item reference O26 (1352). Further /
full sized images available upon request.
