Good example of characteristic form and large proportions with 19” curved d.e. blade decorated with a stipple edged engraved foliage panel each side. Wood hilt sheathed in gilt brass decorated in bands and panels of linear and geometric motifs. The front mounted with three colored “gem stones.” Heavy leather covered scabbard with large gilt brass mounts similarly decorated. The top mount with a single red “stone.” Leather shrunk, but sound, tight and complete. Mounts and hilt with numerous small dings and minor losses from use.
