A saber of the form favored by French officers of light artillery, hussars, lancers and chasseurs a cheval, circa. 1812. The single-edged, curved blade has one wide fuller; it is 32-1/4" long by 1-1/8" wide at ricasso and bears etched panoplies of arms and floral motifs. The brass-mounted hilt has a D-shaped knucklebow and terminates in front with a ball-shaped quillon, with two side branches to the guard and full langets; its leather-wrapped grip has three strands of twisted brass wire set in the grooves. CONDITION: Very good overall condition to saber; the spine of the blade appears to have had a marking purposely filed off near the ricasso. JLK
