This nicely-preserved matched pair of good quality Solingen-made fencing foils dates to the second half of the 19th century. Pommel of one of the foils is marked M or W. Blades are of excellent steel, and retain all of their vigor. Leather on the grip is of glove-quality. Some light leather loss from normal wear. Both blades are 83 cm long. Brass hilts have acquired a nice uniform patina. A very attractive and early matched pair.
