Brass hilt with floral motif guard and helmet pommel. Cloth-covered grip and 24” blunt tipped blade. Typical of the many thousands of these which were part of the wardrobe and props for the village theaters and opera houses which existed in nearly every small town in America. Today, very few have survived the scrap drives of two wars and the first half of the 20th century, when the population swelled with immigrants who thought anything old without utility value was useless and the few who recognized the value of antiques stuck to furniture and art.
