Bronze hilt of impressive large proportions with double shell guard. The right shell larger, which specifically identifies it as late 17th-early 18th century. Both shells profusely decorated with classical and then contemporary warrior scenes, the other hilt elements decorated to match. Original wire wrapped grip with upper turban form knot and lower ferrule, added (replaced) at the time of refurbishment. The 31 3/4" diamond section blade a 19th century fighting blade. The hilt of proportions near as large as they come and fully immersed in the rapier era. The blade fully functional with the hilt but later. Not the double convex form of militia swords. All indicators point to the 1848 Revolutions which brought massive political and cultural change to Europe, impacting the serf system and resulting in battle with government troops in numerous areas through Europe. This sword clearly was refurbished in the 19th century, evidently to serve in the Revolutions of 1848.
