A superb and decorative French C.1900 Senior Naval Officer's Dress Sword
This is a rarely found example of a very senior (admiral grade) French naval officer's dress sword. It is based on the Model 1837 French naval officer's sword but differs in that both the hilt and scabbard are highly decorated with gilt brass motifs. The ribbed grip is made from horn and the hilt also retains its original dress sword knot. The blade is plain and with a nickel plated finish. Is maker marked near the blade forte. The sword comes complete with a fantastic leather and gilt brass scabbard. Probably a unique piece.
Condition of the Sword
In good overall condition - scabbard leather worn/restored in places - some wear to blade.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 26.5 inches (32 inches overall).
