This fantastic Napoleonic sword just came out of an old collection, and requires some gentle cleaning to the scabbard and the hilt. The hilt is of Rumford type, popular in Western Europe in the late 1700s, the grip is ebony. Hilts of this style were first mounted on Bavarian cavalry sword [m/1788] , and later on some others. Blade is almost 90 cm long, and retains much of its original blue and gilt decorations.
A wonderful, untouched early Napoleonic light cavalry officers Rumford saber, light, fast, and nicely-balanced.
