Hilt of French sword by unknown zoom

Hilt of French sword

French sword. The angular knuckle-bow hilt is gilt brass. The guard has a near rectangular shell on the obverse side, which has five bells on its outer edge, leading to a small up-turned quillion with leaf decoration. At the mid-point the bow has a prominer human mask (male) with leaves above and below and the shell has a full view representation of a female face, wreathed and backed by rays radiating from behind her head. The sword bears some similarities to the sword of an 'Administrateur de Marine' and the general use of classical forms is in keeping with French practice in the early years of the 19th century.
