Description from user:

This is US Navy issued dress sword. It measures 37" from the end of the scabbard to the top of the hilt. The material of the blade is unknown and the scabbard is bamboo with brass accents. Handle is alligator skin wrapped. It has not been cleaned or reconditioned and there was some crude sharpening done to the blade which takes away from the detailed engraving work on the blade. Issued date is unknown.

US Navy Dress Sword belonging to a distant relative. Pervere is inscribed near the hilt and that name is related to my mothers side of the family, generations back. I do not know the era or exact history. I will update this listing as I accumulate more information.

What does this mean?

Dear Christopher,

Thank you for contacting Mearto with your appraisal inquiry. My sincere apologies for the delay with the appraisal.

The presented object appears to be a US Navy dress sword with scabbard with a length of 37 inches. This sword was made in the 20th century. The blade has an etched decor and the name of the former owner E/F W Pervere is written on the blade. Such US Navy or Army dress swords are often on the market.
Comparable objects were recently offered and sold on the international auction market. 
This piece is in good condition and there is no serious damage visible in the images provided.
A fair market estimation would be between 100 to 200 USD.
This estimate is based on actual recent past recorded auction sales of comparable items. Retail "asking prices" can be higher and may vary.

With kind regards,
