Made in a style popular at the time and often referred to as hunting swords though in fact, they were carried for personal defense. This example is fully a fifth larger than ordinarily encountered and made to a much higher standard. The 23 5/8” blade is signed on the back LEPETON Re Ds CARMES A ROUEN, a maker best known for smallswords, examples of which are preserved in public collections. Both sides of the blade are elaborately embellished with Ottoman military symbols flanked by cabalistic ciphers. The forte, each side, bears a cabalistic inscription panel. The reeded ebony grip is enhanced by iron studs on the faces as well as the tang bands. A flower and lattice motif is repeated on the mounts. A sword of exceptional size reflecting the stature and prowess of its owner.
