Though I'm not the specialist in makers' brands, the sign, just on sight, reminds me Georgian emblem - the same is on the flag of this country, in red on white. What kind of sword it is? May we see it whole?

I have sent you an email, Multumesc.
You have to correct your picture upload system. No web hosts, but direct forum attachment uploads.

I'm not good with regimental swords, but this one very similar to the British cavalry troopers sword, m1882. In any case, post-Georgian, more Victorian. I do believe it's a Brit model in any case...

Hi,
I think this one is Austrian, mid 19thC or thereabouts, possibly cavalry officers model.
Regards,
Norman.
