Fancy cross guard and hilt - made of nickel silver (we believe) - and looks to show remnants of silver plating. Because the leather washer between the guard and blade is missing - the handle is a bit loose (the pommel could be tightened - if one wanted to). Original fancy nickel silver scabbard - there is a tear towards the tip, but the metal is still attached - and the blade still fits. Stamped: SCHOLBERG & JOUCLA on the blade. They were merchants with stores in Brazil, Argentina and Uruguay.
PELOTAS is in the very south of Brazil - close to the Argentina and Uruguay border - GAUCHO country. Please study the pictures - they are the most important part of the description!
