Hilt of dirk

Dirk thought to be French in origin. The dirk consists of a brass cross-hilt, with diamond section quillons. The obverse of the cross is decorated with an embossed anchor, which is placed vertically on a hexagonal ground. The anchor is not 'fouled'. The style of the inscription suggests that it dates to the Revolution in France and therefore dates from 1793 or soon after. The scabbard is missing. The combination of the anchor motif, the collar and the inscription, seem to leave little doubt that this weapon is French.
