Lot 170, Auction 3/15/2018: 19th C. European Sword & Scabbard - Spadroon

Europe, probably England or France, ca. 19th century CE. A simple ceremonial sword with a narrow, straight steel blade and a polished bronze handle. A relief floral design wraps around the lower part of the round pommel, which is capped by a flared, flat-topped button. The floral motifs continue around the top of the branch, which flows into the guard. The sword blade is protected by a leather and bronze scabbard. This type of sword is sometimes known as a spadroon, a light sword (also called a "small sword") with a straight blade. The spadroon became popular in the 1790s with military officers in England, and it quickly spread to France and the United States. Size: 4.3" W x 40" H (10.9 cm x 101.6 cm)

Condition: Light surface wear with intact scabbard.
