M1784 French Glaive de l’Artillerie
Short Sword
Deaccession

divisor line

Presented is a M1784 French, double edge, short sword with finely crafted Lion Head hilt. A simple knob
capstan secures the tang with everything held tight. The bronze hilt which is in perfect condition, has a rich
deep green patina which varies in tone from light to dark. The blade is heavily encrusted with rust, much of which is
flaking, making the colors range from reddish on the surface to dark brown. The blade holds the semblance
of an edge. There is no scabbard.
On the crossguard penned in ink is written E.56.7.1…HH1167. This number was assigned
by the museum which recently sold the sword to benefit their “Collections Fund”. The small white tag on the hilt repeats this
information. There are no other markings.
