Iron hilt relief decorated with foliage and oval panels of arms to the knuckle bow, quillon block, pommel and oval side ring. Down turned lip "rainproof" base mount to protect the scabbard. The entire hilt in fine preservation with original glossy black surface overlaid with gold ground surrounding the decoration. The gold uniformly a little weak but present in fine contrast. Intricate wire wrapped grip. 31 1/8" flattened diamond section blade decorated the first third with panels of a king standing before arms, baroque foliage, incised star bursts and double fullered segments with foliage infill, all with heavy gold background completely intact. The balance of the blade bright with very minor discoloration only.
