Hi, thanks for helpful responses.
My comment on the lower suspension ring was only to say that I think it was the main 'load bearer', with the sabre intended to hang vertically, not at 45 degrees, (a-la-Hussard).
The chain anchor point came detached with the chain, it seems (formed as a half link, like those on the chain proper). A previous owner tried to glue it back on.
Overall length: 87 cm (34.3 inches)
Blade: 69 cm (27 inches)
will post a pic of the the pommel nut and thread on tang of sabre.
