Here is a sword that has been passed down in the family, Please help me identify it to the best of your alls ability. It has a story that I will share but, I find it to be a bit far fetched. 1st I will try and upload some photos and answer any questions I can.

Pic 2
The overall length is 38"
On the blade there are 3 carvings each measuring 1 to 1.5" in length
One is just some scroll work
one is a couple old crossed cannons with flag pole or spears through them (behind them)
the 3rd is some flag poles in some round decorative "tube" stuctures
Opposite side has 3 as well 2 are the crossed cannons and the middle is a flag shield combo
The flags have no distinct markings and the cannons etc. have what appear to be a flower carved in them?????
Anyway the handle has a crown in the middle of the pearl and it is raised and the hilt has a lion head and there is a Lion on the forward part of the Hilt/handle
sorry not very up to date on all the trminalogy

It looks like a 19th century german court sword, specifically bavarian. I have seen one identical to that one before. Is there any kind of maker's mark ? That might help esablish the age. W
