This is a high end example of the 1822 cavalry officer sabre assembled by Leon Chobert of Paris. The blade was made by arguably the best French sword manufacture of the time, Chatellerault, in 1894. It bears the owner’s initials, beautifully etched on the top of the pommel cap. The sword is in near pristine shape, with a few scuff marks on the blade, with no movement at all in the hilt and its original wire and scabbard.
A perfect and high quality example of this very popular and long lasting sabre which was copied all over the world.
