Early Antique European Short Sword

$ 0.00

Early Antique European (maybe French or German) Short Sword, circa. 17th-early 18th century (and possibly later).  23.5" double-edge unmarked blade.  Heavy worked and twisted steel cruciform-style cross guard with a very interesting pierced shell-style appointment with a "P" in the center, small angled lemon shape pommel.  A very intricate braided copper wire over fabric grip.  30.25" overall length.  No scabbard.

Note; It is our opinion that the blade is late 18th-19th century.
