19th century. 11 1/2” s.e./d.e. blade, of good quality indicative of its early manufacture, struck with a crisp maker’s mark and bearing a collection number to the base. Shaped wood hilt with engraved brass mounts, faceted engraved crest and banded base mount. Twisted wire inlay and diced decoration to the wood. The scabbard with large elegant suspension rings and well decorated in lattice motif. Excellent early example and about as large as these come.
