A very rare French Dated 1830 Garde Nationale Officer's Sword
This is a seldom seen French dated 1830 Garde Nationale officer's sword. The sword comprises an elegant brass, three-bar hilt with partial leather and brass twistwire to the grip. The blade retains just about all of the original blue and gilt decoration and includes Garde Nationale 1830 and Liberte Ordre Public to either side. Other fine decoration includes elaborate gilt stands of trophies to the forte and further along the blade.
Condition of the Sword
As mentioned, most of the leather to the wooden grip is missing but twistwire remains. If the leather is restored, this would be a very fine sword. Blade in excellent condition.
Specifications of the Sword
Blade length is 30.5 inches (36 inches overall).
