Very nice French gentleman self defense folder commonly referred to as a *Chatellerault*, referring to the original place where this type of knives were crafted.

Wonderful mother of pearl slabs over steel liners fastened by three rivets, nickel silver bolsters

Overall condition are good to very good, blade looks to be almost full with some up and down play in the locked open position

Some overall pitting to the steel parts due to time but no rust. It could be easilt cleaned up but I leave the choise of the type and degree of the cleaning to the future owner

Few naturallines of separation to the sclaes
