Project Description


This is a pair of miniature fencing foils by unknown makers, both in an antique leather hinged top case.  Foil one is made of brass & is 3 1/8″ long overall with a 2 5/16″ round blade.  It has a cup type guard, a wire wrapped handle, & a brass pommel.  Foil two is 3 9/16″ long.  The steel blade is triangular.  The guard is a figure 8 shape & looks to be nickel plated steel.  The handle is nickel plated brass, & is wrapped with alternating brass & black leather beaded cord.  Both cased in what looks to be an antique black leatherette hinged top case with pivoting latch.  the interior bottom lined in purple felt.  The interior top lined in an off white silk.  The brass foil, # one, has tarnished, otherwise excellent.  The steel foil, # two is excellent.  The case shows wear to the corners & edges, and a scuff where the latch pivots.  Excellent craftsmanship!  Price Reduced:  $125.00.
