An iconic and quite scarce French Model 1822 Sabre de Cavalerie de Ligne, Klingenthal manufactured, correct poinçons, dated June 1829. This one has lost most of its twisted grip wire bindings but this is very easily replaced by even the most novice of handymen (simply use jewelry brass wire, double it and then twist it using a vice and the drill bit jaws of an electric drill on very slow speed.



The exceptionally impressive 97.5 cm blade is in very good condition with just a little patina towards the tip end. Firm in the hilt; the solid brass hilt good. Original grip leather intact; some age / wear but overall good. The browned (original chemically browned, not patina / rust) heavy steel scabbard is very good save for a couple of inert rust splodges. The sword sheathes and draws well.

Lovely iconic sword. A good price at just £650. Please quote item reference number AD16. Further / full sized pictures available upon request. Box 0415-1.18 (3.199).
