This outstanding mid 1800s court sword will fill the bill for the right collector. High relief, chiseled bronze furniture retains virtually all of its original heavy gold plating over a laurel motif set off by the classic figure of a patriotic eagle. Beautifully colored natural mother of pearl grips offer a pleasing age patina. Overall length is 39 inches with a slender 29 inch, three fuller triangular blade with maker engraving. Of special note is that the slender leather scabbard with its furniture remains in excellent original condition commensurate with the pleasing condition of the sword.
Because as experienced collectors will attest, the delicately slender leather scabbard of these court swords are nearly always broken or missing furniture or both. An outstanding, all original example of a classic style seldom surviving in collectable condition, a good look our photos will offer the best description.
