This extraordinary early cutlass which is Austrian and has the royal crest on the mother of pearl grip and has never been in a collection before. Has beautiful gilding and detail with an eagle head pommel. The blade shows normal hunt scenes and is in near mint condition for being almost 200 years old. Beautiful clamshell with a bear and dogs fighting scene. Comes complete with scabbard that shows alot of filigree work to the fittings. The leather seam is still inatact and has no major flaws at all. The interesting part is that it still retains the original skinner knife that is extremely rare. Just a goreous cutlass.
