I am no expert on this kind of swords but I think this is a piece of pure historism. At least I cannot see any traces of age of the last 450 years.

I checked the name "GOYET" a second time and found

- GOYET, arquebusier cannonier a St.Etienne en 1680-1700

Perhaps a son of this Goyet moved to Brest during the 18. century?!

I don't know what this is but for me the end of the grip looks like a cowboy or western boot. Maybe it is a tool to ease pulling on or of these boots?

I think this is the Austrian cavalry sabre M 1850 with a blade made by the Austrian gunmaker JUNG. Its name is also to be found on barrels of the cavalry pistol M 1862 and the infantry gun M 1854....

One of the medals/coins shows the portrait of pope Pius IX (PONT MAX) 1846-1878, so this piece cannot have been in use before 1846.
