31 3/4 flattened diamond section blade. The forte of convex section well etched inn foliage and strap work surrounding a central panel each side. The right with an anthropomorphic radiant sun symbolizing The Sun King. The reverse with the motto Where is My Sunshine? Hilt deeply modeled with classical figures, some evidently warriors, in various pursuits. Gilt copper wire wrapped grip, a little loose from core shrinkage. The hilt with dark patina. Blade smooth gray brown beyond the decoration which is clean with considerable original gold remaining.
