French AN XI Model Infantry / Artillery Briquet,
1819 to 1822, Sold
In good condition, a French AN XI Model Infantry / Artillery Briquet,
markings for 1819 to 1822.
In very good overall condition, the inscription to the spine has
been rubbed out but the poinçons are for Boutet of Versailles
and Jean Joseph Cécile Bureau (inspector from 6th
February 1819 to 1st March 1822 - see here).
23 1/8 inch blade is in good condition, as is the sword generally;
all firm. The scabbard is aged but the sword sheathes and draws
well. The number "82" is stamped to the front of the cross
A good example, not least as it comes with the original scabbard.
