After the fall of the First Reich, it was decided to reorganize the armament and it was Colonel Cotti who took care of it. A model for light cavalry, one for heavy cavalry, one for foot artillery and one for infantry was created.
This model is the ancestor of all sabres, which were then manufactured up to the 1896 model. It was used until the end of the restoration. It marks the disappearance of the Orillions and the long cap, a characteristic sign of the cavalry.
This sabre has equipped hunters on horseback and hussars, the line and the royal guard.
The sabre has the usual signs of age and use, is generally in excellent condition, hilt also shows signs of use, with winding in good condition. Stabbing back blade in a beautiful and smooth structure, where the back tapers towards the point, but is continuous. With minimal stains. Sheath also shows signs of age and use.
A truly rare historical sabre.
