The small sword (also court sword, French: épée de cour or dress sword) is a light one-handed sword designed for thrusting which evolved out of the longer and heavier rapier of the late Renaissance. The height of the small sword's popularity was between mid 17th and late 18th century. It is thought to have appeared in France and spread quickly across the rest of Europe. The small sword was the immediate predecessor of the French dueling sword (from which the épée developed. This is an excellent original C1870 Victorian British Royal Household Court Small Sword (see page 280 of Wither’s book ‘World Swords’ where a C1870 British Royal Court Sword with similar hilt as ours is illustrated).

The blade is etched on both sides with foliate decoration. There are no visible maker or date marks. The sword measures 37” overall. It is complete with its original brass mounted leather scabbard.
