This antique small sword, also known as a court sword, was carried during the Napoleonic War of the late 19th century. It is dated to mid 19th century.
It is of the typical French small/court sword style, which was derived from the earlier rapier. The handle is fully intact and is in excellent condition. Sadly the blade is not the original – it has been replaced sometime in its long history, possibly due to damage to the original blade.
This sword does not come with its original matching scabbard.
