French M1874 Gras Bayonet by Chatellerault
Straight, T-profile blade, blued hilt with hooked quillon, riveted wood grips, brass pommel. Blued steel scabbard.
The spine of the blade is marked in cursive script ‘Mre d'Armes de Chât’, for Manufacture d'armes de Châtellerault, and "Juillet 1876".
The serial number ‘15700’ can be found on the hilt and ‘99833’ on the scabbard, indicating a non-original pairing.
