One of the most beautiful antique stiletto/dagger that i saw,with bronze sheath and handle .Worked as a work of art,at first appearance seems to be a small bronze branch decorated with insects,beetles, leeaves and at the end with a big snail (these elements remembering death) but in reality is a stiletto/dagger .Blade is short and slightly curved and seems to a ancient blade.It can be from year 1700,from year 1800 or from early 1900,i am not an expert,so i'll let you to make your opinion because i am sure you know more than me about this stiletto.Many of the details about this knife i know with kindness from a friend from Italy.
Blade measure about 12,5cm
Blade with handle measure about 23,5 cm
Closed with sheath measure about 28 cm
But question remains,how old is...?
