This Army Officer's Sword Portepee is in excellent condition, having been on a sword, with no damage or tears to the leather. The black leather straps are decorated with three rows of aluminum bullion stitching which run the full length of the strapping. The slide is made of matching black woven leather enhanced with bullion trim. The stem is the flat style having a crochet-like aluminum bullion that is open and reveals the aluminum metal below. An oval shaped acorn is of yarn-like celluloid which has yellowed somewhat over time. And, the inside has stuffing of black thread.
A very nice Portepee that would be a perfect addition to an excellent conditioned sword.
