    Hello - Identify this sword found in attic?

    Here are some pics of a sword. Some markings are:
    'coulaux de klingenthal'
    'france 41 or france 141' in box.
    also some other text which I cant read.

    any more ideas?

    Good afternoon,
    I believe it is a belgian sword, due to the crest of the dukes of Brabant.
    Best,

    Beautiful piece.

    The arms on the pommel are the same, or at least very similar to that of the Belgian Van de Werve family.

    You might want to take a look at their family site:
