In fair condition, an An XI Napoleonic era French Infantry / Artillery Briquet Sword.
The date part of the Klingenthal maker’s inscription to the blade’s spine is illegible. This An XI briquet is either Napoleonic or just after.
The 23 1/4 inch blade has age / a steady patina and several nicks to the cutting edge. Blade firm in the hilt. The one piece brass grip / hilt with age but good.
Honest example of a French An XI briquet. Just £350. Please quote item reference AF99. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1354-81x18x16 (1.590).
