19th cenutry recreation of the classic Roman gladius.
Though such swords had little practical use in a battlefield of cannon, musket and bayonet, they served primarily to dignify the army that bore them into battle with the inherited mantle of the idealized Roman Republic. This example with a striking eagle-headed pommel is a particular example that very heavily lends its stylings to a Romanticized 19th century vision of old Roman empire.
