Colonial resistance period of guerilla and outright battle preventing fought French control. 16 1/2” curved single-edged blade with chiseled decoration and cabled brass inlay as found on the long swords. The geometric hilt and wood scabbard covered decorated with wirework and red pigment segments in a combination of geometric and naturalistic patterns. Reverse with wire work to the hilt. Lovely uniform patina attesting to its age and use.
