Cool! Looks very Hussar-like to me. I'm not much up on French late 18-early 19c sabres, so Others I am sure can pin it down. Klingenthal made the best blades at the time, and I've heard British officers would frequently pick up a no longer operational opponent's Klingenthal sword to use in place of his own.

The "Coulaux Freres a Klingenthal" corresponds to the post-napoleonic period.

More accurate dating can be done based on the stamps on the blade and on the hilt... if any.
However, if there are any stamps on the ricasso they may be masked by the langets.

Sorry, but Coulaux Frères took this name at the 21st of april 1801, so the sabre has been made clearly in the Napoleonic aera!
