Here we have a nice piece! The portepee consists of; a string, round slide, along with a wood based: stem, crown and ball. The portepee is wrapped in an interwoven gold bullion thread. The bottom has a recessed hole with matching bullion dot. It has no frays and has aged and patinaed quite nicely! This type is normally associated with Navy daggers. Impossible to find any more.
We would recommend that you read our Policies page before making a purchase.
