European made, likely Germany, and the predecessor to a type which saw extensive distribution in South America. One piece brass hilt with down turned, roped guard. Horn scale grips. The pommel modeled in fine full round naturalistic and just slightly over large wolf's head. 30 1/2" straight s.e. blade shows typical chocolate brown patina with mixed condition including some isolated pock mark pitting and raised rust growth. Grip scales warped and slightly delaminated. Hilt dark with a few negligible nicks to the exposed tang. Later examples are like light machetes while this one is a sword every" with the possibility of excusing its being in the hands of a peasant by claiming it could be used for farm work.
