French Model 1831 foot artillery sword, Sold
In sound overall condition, a French Model 1831 foot artillery
sword (coupe choux / cabbage chopper).
The 18 3/4 inch blade has areas of pitting but is solid / sound
and firm in the hilt. The hilt is overall good. The scabbard is
aged and has shrunk a little, but is sound. The sword sheathes and
draws well; slight gap between scabbard top and hilt when fully
sheathed due to leather shrinkage.
A good coupe choux / cabbage chopper for only £? (too late,
now sold). Please quote item reference Q61 (0399). Further / full
sized images available upon request.
