finials. Knuckle bow with central chiseled acanthus decoration attached to the ovoid

edged 33″ hollow-ground colichemarde blade with engraved foliage and stands of arms

to the guard, probably due to shrinkage of the grip with age, but it does not appear to have
ever been apart. Overall length 39 1/2″.
