A case could be made for this sword to be put into Oakeshott's Type XIX, though as I feel it would be a little bit of a stretch to fit this sword there, I have instead opted to put the sword in the non-Oakeshott section.
Straight blade with a wire and interlocked with two deep grooves, three at the heel, laying back to the signature "Coulaux & C Klingenthal"; imposing massive golden brass hilt with shell at the front richly perforated laying down arms on flags and flowered, raceme perforated shell at the back, arm hilt w/ cornucopia with grapes; closed helmet pommel and grip trophies; steel scabbard with brass mounts and bell.
Length 105.5 cm.
€ 3,500.00 (€ 3,500.00 auction) May 2014
