Fine Gold Encrusted 18th c. French Smallsword
Part of me hopes this one doesn’t sell. This is the finest French sword I have owned. It is chiselled steel decorated with thick Gold Accents. Unlike most smallswords this was done by a master taking his time on every inch of the hilt. Decorated with helmets, spears, bows and arrows, floral, armor and other war regalia. Although the scabbard is new, the mounts appear to be original to the sword with exception of scabbard tip. I believe it says “Win or Die” in French on the blade. Blade is 29 3/4”
