French 1821M Klingenthal / Coulaux Infantry Officer's Sword, circa 1835

Sales enquiries

The blade's spine inscription "Manufre Rle du Klingenthal" has been rubbed down to remove the date, probably as this blade was made at the Klingenthal factory in 1835 / 1836 which closed down in preference of the associated Coulaux Frères factory. We know this because the poinçons are for Coulaux Frères and Charles Schmitt (inspector) 1835/1836.

The 29 9/16 inch blade is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The hilt also good. The hardwood grip has some chips / loss and is a little faded, the twisted grip wire is still there and good. The leather and metal fittings scabbard is fairly good (period twine and pitch reinforcement repair). The sword sheathes and draws well.

Interesting sword because it comes from the Klingenthal to Coulaux Frères transitional period. Well worth £? (too late, now sold). Please quote item reference P38 (0242). Further / full sized images available upon request.
