$20. Yard sale item

I found this bayonet at a yard sale. Any Idea what it belongs to? On the back of the blade it has beautiful writing in cursive. It is French and it reads
Mre d' Ormel de St. Etienne Sbre 1876 (Mr. Ormel of St. Etienne Sept 1876). The handgaurd and scabard have matching numbers 78726. Ahead of the handle on the blade is 2 letters an "S" and a"W".
Any info would be great.

Probably a bayonet for a Fusil Gras M80 Modèle 1874
