Measuring 13 inches overall, with an 8 1/2 inch long double edged spear point blade engraved "Wms Smith/74 Regent Street London" on one side. Smith has not been positively identified. The hilt is of single piece construction, with the 2 3/4 inch wide crossguard formed of a rectangular panel with short quillions elaborately carved in the shape of rose bushes, grip section with fish-scale carving, and a highly detailed lion head for the pommel. Scabbard absent. Provenance: The Dr. Gerald Klaz Collection
Very good. The blade shows some light cleaning, with a mixed gray patina, some mild spotting, and light handling marks. The hilt is excellent, with bright color, minimal handling marks, and attractive detail.
