The hilt with slender grip flanked by beaded bands and deeply dished pommel. Chiseled throughout in panels of foliage and stylized geometry and heavily overlaid in silver. 25 ¾” s.e. blade with false edge, embellished with three concentric depressed center circles surrounding the langets and a further one at the 2/3 point, to the right side. Blade polished with some forging grain and expected pitting for the period. Very handsome example.
