French 1821 Model Infantry Officer's Sword,
In good overall condition, a French 1821 Model infantry officer's
sword, made by Klingenthal Coulaux & Cie in 1838.
The blade's spine has been rubbed down so only a tiny amount of
the original "Manuf're Klingenthal Coulaux & Cie"
inscription remains, but the "B
under crown" and "G within frilled circle poinçons"
confirm this was made by them and dates the sword to 1838.
The 29 5/8 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt.
The hilt mostly good. The hardwood grip has some chips / loss and
is faded, the twisted grip wire is still there and good. The leather
and metal fittings scabbard is fairly good. The sword sheathes and
A good example at a nice price; £? (too late, now sold).
