Burbon Sword c.1815

Here we offer a beautiful example of a French Army spadroon of the post Napoleonic era. The style imitates the British pattern 1796, and yet has dainty features more common to the pillow sword of the late 18th century. With its simple wire wrapped grip, the steel hilt is provided a folding ornate shell guard featuring a raised grenade in front of the sun burst, the image repeated on the pommel, typical symbols of grenadiers and royalty. Could it have been used by a palace guard? The wire grip is a little loose, but it does not detract from the overall quality of the sword. The blade is in near mint condition with brilliant blue and gilding, highlighting crisp etched ornate decorative floral features along the blade. The scabbard is in very good condition with all of its steel parts, with only minor wear to the leather. A very fine and unique blade of the short-lived Burbon King.
