Heavy bronze hilt with relief classical Roman arms display to the grip. 22 5/8" yataghan form French blade (smooth freckled patina). These are encountered with straight blades as well, but most of the in this form. The blade is of a French bayonet, though unmarked and likely never mounted as such but surplus production. Sometimes called theatrical, these are much too heavy and potentially lethal to support that conclusion. Another attribution is that they were made for the 1893 Columbian Exposition, which fits chronologically but lacks any documentation. Time will tell. In any event, a handsome, and we believe made to be functional, short sword.
