    • The 19 1/8 inch blade with various fine metalwork extrusions, engravings and brass discs is in good condition and firm in the hilt. The stag hilt is very good, some small breakages to the glass inclusions. The wooden scabbard with rattan strips is in good condition, though aged and with some minor splitting evident.

      Most of the beads have been preserved.
