Forged iron guard consisting of round bars and large up-turned shells; the obverse
deeply chiseled with stylized beasts, reverse shell with only a line border.  Long straight
tapering quillons with turned finials; integral knucklebow decorated ensuite, connected
with double bars each side joining the shells.  Concentric rings joining the shells at the
side. Grip wrapped with alternating large twisted silver wire and smaller twisted iron wire
(later, but nicely done).  Slender 39 ½" lens-section blade with deep central fuller
stamped “JOHANNI” one side and “ANTANI”(?) other side; shield-shape maker’s mark
on the long flat ricasso.  Overall length 46".  Very good quality and condition, showing
wear commensurate with age and use.
