    It's a quality made sword, but unlike anything I've seen. It's not a military sword, but not really a Court sword either. The piped back quill point blade is a serious blade and suggests a 1890-1910 era to me. I'm thinking it could a German made blade and possibly a special commission or Show sword to demonstrate the maker's skill. Interesting piece. Any visible marks?

    Thanks for your answear Anderson, there's a marking I can't read in photos, and the seller says he doesn't read what it says, but it ends with the word "France".

    Thank you all, I haven't been able to find anything yet, but I think the marking says Coulaux & Cie Klingenthal France, I attach photos

    You could probably do some research on that, that may be a distributor name rather than a maker mark, but it's a quality sword.

    Coulaux et Cie was the blade maker from Klingenthal. A fairly short-lived blade smith from France.

    thank you all for your answers. I have contacted a reputable seller of sabers in France to get information, he has told me that he has not seen any like it, but that it corresponds to the period of the Third Republic of France between 1871 and 1940. Of oriental inspiration, probably for export to some oriental country. Uncommon, since he has not seen any like it.
