Description
 
Very good condition French Briquet, much used and much wear.
Could do with a clean.
Lots of armoury and inspection stamps, confusion as to location and date of manufacture.

Model An XI:
Blade length 59.5 cm
Hilt with 28 deeper grooves and rolled style quillon.
Maker Klingenthal (sometimes hilted in Versailles)
The sword does not state Klingenthal on it. There is a date on the blade, looks like 1831. Scabbard has one very old repair, seen clearly in photo.
