More info, a friend of mine, by the name of Jose Torres, pointed me to a sword maker in Solingen by the name Clemens Bogel.
After some web search, there seems to have been a couple brothers, Johann and Clemens Bögel. who used the cartouche IGB (Iohan et Clemens Bogel) at the Solingen sword factory.
I still don't know the nature of this epee. Officer, Diplomat, Court?
The hollow pyramidal blade gives it a woozy sense of lightness, quite handy!
