Thank you for submitting your item for appraisal. This appears to be a chinese 19th century Dao sabre, slightly curved, single edged blade with thin groove, decorated with dragon motif, bronze hilt with rope covering, scabbard with snake leather and bronze mounts. The estimate is based on similar items offered or sold at auction. There is no measurement for the sentimental value you might attach to the item.
