Item #: BQ3257 -- An Altered M1831 French Brass Hilted Infantry Short Sword with Later Indonesian Sheath -- $875.00
Uncleaned blade with old sharpening and even dark rust patina with old moderate pitting, mostly near the tip. Remnants of an oval stamp visible at the ricasso. The quillons removed and ground smooth. The natively made scabbard is truly a work of art; the wooden core covered with low grade silver sheathing in embossed floral pattern and wonderfully carved bone throat and drag. The metal cover segments exhibiting slight movement. A one of a kind sword that displays beautifully. 68.2cm. overall in scabbard.
