Ceremonial Kılıç (Turkish kılıç - kılıç - kılıç, literally a sword) of the 1860s.

Supposedly belonged to a general staff officer, Kaiserliche und königliche Armee - Imperial Royal Army, during the reign of Franz Joseph, Austro-Hungarian Empire 1867-1922. Material: Steel blade. The scabbard is made of chased silver with remnants of gilding, decorated with cabochon-cut semi-precious stones: ruby, garnet, jade, turquoise. The lower part of the scabbard in a later version. The rarest work of art made by master gunsmiths of the 19th century undoubtedly has historical and artistic value.
Historical note: For the first time, the Central Asian Turks and their offshoots began to use curved cavalry swords, in the period from the end of the 3rd century BC. The earliest examples of curved Turkish swords can be found during the period of the Eastern Turkic Khaganate. After the Ottoman invasion of the Balkans, in most European armies, sabers of the Kilich type were adopted.
