Is this a German short sword?

Article about: I can't find reference to it anywhere. It has no other markings other than what I photographed on the guard. Annoyed from this ads?

    Hi there, I'm no expert but there is a strong resemblence to late 18th or early 19th Century French Grenadier Swords. These swords have many variations but here's some from Google.
