    European work of the 19th century
    Ivory, steel, gilt bronze and wood
    Total length : 63 ; Length of the shaft : 13 cm

    This very particular dagger raises the attention by its composite nature. Indeed, the spindle, the guard and the blade seem to come from different elements. However, the balance found and the choice of the elements makes the harmony.
    The blade comes from a hunting dagger. It is made of double-edged steel, enhanced with gold and marked on the heel on both sides. On one side the mention: "De La Manufacture De La marque à LExtra fin à Sohlingen EXT FIN", on the other, in capital letters: "De Vaux fourbisseur de l'école royale militaire place de trois Maris au Dieu Mars à Paris". It is punctuated with hunting attributes such as a stag and a banner bearing the words "Long live hunting".
    The fuse is made of ivory finely carved with a feline head flanked by two cherubs blowing trumpets, on the back of which is carved an oval medallion depicting a portrait of a man crowned with laurel - probably an emperor. The lower part of the fuse is occupied by a lively scene of bacchanalia. In the center, Bacchus sits on his wine barrel, a cup in hand.
    The guard is rectangular in cross-section, composed of wooden blade and gilt bronze friezes cut and openworked on both sides of a leafy mask, also called green man, and foliage. The side panels are decorated with friezes of openwork ovals.
