Reviews

Sabre d’Officiere Superieur de la Premiere Compagnie des Mousquetaires, 1814.  Known as the Mousquetaires Gris, this prestigious unit was disbanded during the revolution and reformed in 1814 following Napoleon’s exile to Elba and return of Louis XVI.  They acted as the Royal Guard to the King when he was travelling outside the Royal residence.  The sabre is pristine, the double fullered 37 3/4 inch blade engraved on the backstrap, Manufr Rle du Klingenthal Septembre 1814; the magnificent four branch guard and black cross medallion are decorated with fleur de lis, and acanthus leaves (see Les Sabres, Lhoste & Resek pp.463).  The black leather scabbard with yellow metal bracelets and end drag is unmarked, and fine.
