A good example of a French Late-19th Century Cavalry Officer's Sword. This is a French cavalry officer's sword dating from the latter end of the 19th Century. With brass, four-bar hilt and horn grip wrapped with brass twistwire. The plain, straight blade is engraved to a Klingenthal maker on the spine. There is also the owner's monogram inlaid in silver to the back of the pommel strap. The use of monograms to French military swords in the 19th Century became very popular and some also feature family coat of arms. This sword has a crown above the owner's initials and it is likely that he was a member of the French aristocracy.
