C1750 Silver Plated Hilt Court / Diplomatic Small Sword With Etched Panels Blade. Sn 18015:4 - 18015:4

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 C1750 Court / Diplomatic small sword (see pages 270 to 282 of Wither’s book ‘World Swords’ where many variants of small sword are illustrated and page 272 (bottom right) where an example in similar form to ours described as C1750 is illustrated). It has a silver plated hilt with part bowl guard and knuckle bow. The urn chaped pommel has a ball top. The slim 33 ¾” blade is straight and undamaged and has just staining consistent with age. The blade has its original hilt washer & etched panels on both sides featuring geometric designs and running wolves. The sword measures 40 ½” overall. There are no visible manufacturer marks on the sword. As is common our example is without scabbard. The price for this attractive Court / Diplomatic small sword includes UK delivery. Sn 18015:4
