A pair of fencing (dueling) foils or swords with blunt ends- no point and no sharp edge Apparently designed and used for practice( and to avoid killing your practice companion) . Blades are 33 1/2" and 41" overall. Both have the number "4" on the blade just below the grip (indicating these are a pair) along with several proof marks. The blades are four (4) sided and straight. The grips are wood ( one has several small cracks) with a small leather hand guard. A considerable amount of blueing on the blades remains. There is a tack in one grip- purpose is unknown. A rare set- not often seen. Probably date to late 1700's or early 1800's
I am selling a large collection. See all under "Romsey".
They would look great crossed on your den wall.
