The scabbard with very old possibly period black paint. As the leather grip is patent black, the scabbard paint may be original, so we have left it be. Engraved along the impressive blade’s spine to Chatellerault September 1833. With a couple of small period nicks to the blade, it may well have seen battle in Algeria, Spain or Morocco.
The 38 5/8 inch blade is in very good overall condition and firm in the hilt / guard. The brass hilt / guard with age but good. The patent leather grip with some loss and age, but sound, though the twisted grip wire is gone. The steel scabbard good. The sword sheathes and draws well.
Good example in good condition and at a good low price, was £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference Z11. Further / full sized images available upon request. Box 1526-117x15x14 (2.716).
