A truly beautiful and high end example of these rare swords. This is the best example of this type that I've encountered and is in basically perfect condition with 99% of the gilding remaining, the blade in 99% original polish condition. The same on the handle and the polished rayskin on the scabbard also in excellent condition.
Nearly impossible to get a better example.
Overall length is 33 1/2", blade is 27".
