Purchased 10 years ago. Very heavy piece, the handle is Iron, the blades are extremely sharp so it was not a presentation piece but a used piece. The scabbard is bronze i think with the most exquisite forged hammered work, the details are like calligraphy on one side, the other is like a dragon. Its so beautiful actually. From experience, probably around turn of the century. Around the time of the Chinese Boxer period. Maybe Peking. Because its not as fine as in the older Chinese swords made out of Bronze & Jade etc. So quite certain its that era, 1890/1900. 79cm (length). Very heavy.
