    ~ A French first pattern - with a screw on the back edge of the scabbard - heavy cavalry troopers broadsword made by Klingenthal,1810 with the original first pattern heavy scabbard from the Peninsular wars ~


    The sword has a large four bar brass hilt and a leather and ?twistwire? remaining to the grip. Along the edge of the blade it is signed ?Klingenthal Juin 1810? the full mark although faded in parts should read Mfture Impale du Klingenthal Juin 1810. The scabbard features a screw at the back edge.

    Regulation French swords of the 19th century were primarily issued by two major government manufacturers: Klingenthal, in the east of France near Strasbourg (Alsace) and, later, Châtellerault in the centre of the country near Poitier.

    During the Napoleonic period, regulation swords were also produced by the smaller manufacturer of Versaille, near Paris, which assembled weapons with blades from Klingenthal. These swords bear the stamp Versaille or Boutet on the hilt and are very desirable to collectors. This sword bears the ?Versaille? stamp on its hilt.

    The blade itself has been nickel plated to give a high shine on parade.
