This sword was likely made during the Napoleonic wars and includes elements that can be found in many different sabres from the french army. The handle is an interesting mix of the design of an Imperial Guard briquet and an An IX cavalry officer sabre. This sword was likely carried by an infantry officer as no official pattern existed at this time.
The leather work on the sabre was likely restored, including the leather of the scabbard. The blade is clean and shows signs of having been repolished several times. The whole assembly is very solid with no rattle.
Considering the restoration, I am selling this sabre at a lowered price. It is a good opportunity to own a piece of Napoleonic history.
