This is an sale for a M1850 Foot Officer's sword made in France and was used by company grade officers of infantry, artillery and riflemen during the Civil War. The design calls for a single edged 30 ½ inch blade which is enhanced by etched floral scroll work. The overall length is 36 inches. The guard, knuckle bow and quillion are a single piece of cast brass with a pierced floral or open guard. The markings on the guard are shown in the Photographs. The top edge of the blade also has a Name in French etched in as shown in the photos. This Sword is in good condition and is represented again by the photos. This design for the American model 1850 Sword was based on the French model. The U.S. Army used this pattern until 1872 when the Model 1860 staff and field officers sword was adopted for nearly all officers. This sword not only represents an instrument of War but also is a thing of beauty. There is NO scabbard.
