Sold Item Notice

This sword was once owned by one of Emperor Napoleon Bonaparte's Aide-de-Camps. Which one, we do not know. As you can see, one of the mother-of-pearl grip segments has detached and is missing. Included in the price is a mother of pearl knife handle I bought for someone to craft down into a replacement grip section (I understand wood workers are most likely to have the skills and tools to do this); please ask for photos of it to see. There is also a repair product called Easy Inlay Mother of Pearl Fine or Flake.

The sword originally had an old French museum / auction label on it, but this was missing when it was delivered to us.

The 33 1/2 inch blade implies the officer was tall. It is in very good condition with good amounts of blue and gilt etch remaining. Blade firm in the grip; the hilt with a little movement. Good amounts of gilt remain. The leather and gilt metal scabbard is in very good condition for its age. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Get a replacement grip scale and easily double the value of this sword. Remember, the owner once frequently stood alongside Napoleon Bonaparte himself. Find another! Your chunk (not just piece) of history for £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference number V99 (1110). Further / full sized pictures available upon request.
