Probably a movie prop or from a church processional. Excellent condition but needs some conserving. Needs some polishing with slight rust removal. Well padded inside by shows its age. No crest. But I have seen red horse-hair ones are available on the internet.
It is made of hand-forged 18 gauge, high carbon steel. This metallurgical composition provides excellent resilience, durability and will polish to high sheen.
It comes complete with brass trim and is constructed solidly for ultimate protection.
