An interesting sword in the Fantasie style of a French heavy cavalry officer. This sword is likely French or from one of the German states, the sword has an illegible marking on the ricasso in the French style and extravagant detailing on both the inside and the outside of the guard, on the rear of the pommel cap there is an incredibly detailed pair of flags or lances with pennants and a stirrup hilt sabre (potentially a Blucher) and the branches of the guard have laurel leaves.
The blade is double fullered and slender. Interestingly the grip is squared off unlike most French swords. This sword has no scabbard.
This sword can be yours for £295 or best offer.
